Jangle jalebi (Pilhecellobium dulce) is one of the important legume trees of tropical America and cultivated throughout the plains of India. Total lipid of Jangle jalebi seed was extracted by chloroform I methanol (2:1, vlv) and 27.3% yellow coloured oil was recovered. Individual lipid components were separated by column chromatography by eluting with chloroform (neutral lipids, 69.2%), acetone (glycolipids, 30.7%) and methanol (phospholipids, 0.03%) and their fatty acid composition was detennined after converting to fatty acid methyl esters. Among the fatty acids, oleic acid was the major unsaturated fatty acid in aU the lipid classes. Linoleic acid was major in total, neutral and glycolipids. Palmitic acid (16:0) was found to be considerably higher amounts in phospholipids compared to neutral and glycolipids. The phospholipid fraction was found to contain phosphatidylcholine (PC) and phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) as major components. The seed oil of Jangle jalebi may be considered as an attractive source for edible purpose based on its optimum fatty acid profile.
