9 niger seed samples collected from Maharashtra and Gujarat (India) were analysed. Content of oil ranged from 30.0 to 32.4% and protein from 26.0 to 30.6%. The range of values for other characteristics were: I value, 112.8-129.0; saponification value, 187.0-195.0; free fatty acid, 0.2-2.0%; butyro-refractometer reading, 59.5-62.2; refractive index, 1.4655-1.4673; Bellier turbidity temp., 24.5-27.8 degree C; and unsaponifiable matter, 0.5-1.0%. Oil samples were trans-esterified and fatty acid composition determined by GLC. The saturated fatty acids present were: palmitic 5.8-13.0%; stearic 5.0-7.5%; and arachidic 0.2-1.0%. Oleic (13.4-39.3%) and linoleic (45.4-65.8%) constituted the major fatty acids. UV spectrum of methanol solution of niger seed oil showed 3 peaks at 256, 260 and 267 nm; the possibility of any conjugation was ruled out by the UV spectra of methyl esters.
