MUNOZ JAUREGUI, Ana María et al. Nutritional study of Plukenetia huayllabambana sp. nov. Rev. Soc. Quím. Perú [online]. 2013, vol.79, n.1, pp.47-56. ISSN 1810-634X.

Analysis was performed nutritional composition of seed of Plukenetia huayllabambana sp. nov., of two accessions from the Porvenir Agrarian Experimental Station of the National Institute of Agrarian Innovation (INIA) in the valley of Huallabamba, Rodríguez de Mendoza, province of Amazonas. There were moisture content, ash, protein, lipids, carbohydrates, fiber, fatty acids, magnesium, zinc, iron, calcium as AOAC, and content of phytosterols as Fierro et al. The results showed significant differences in fat content, protein and moisture. The higher fat content was 48,8% and 7,84% moisture in 02-A, while the higher protein content was 21,13% in 01-A. Found 44,06 mg/100 g iron, 38,78 zinc and 149,53 mg/100 g calcium in 01-A be significant differences and higher content (p< 0,05). Regarding 2492,00 mg/100 g magnesium is found in 02-A showing significant differences (p< 0,05). In oil 28,47% linoleic acid and 9,8% oleic acid showed 01-A, while 54% of linolenic acid showed 02-A being more content with significant differences(p< 0,05). Also found 208,48 mg/100 g of â-sitosterol in 01-A. The seeds have high protein and polyunsaturated fatty acid, great nutritional.
