EJLST: Highlights of the Month

Lipid Technology

Assessing fatty acid biostatus: Red blood cells or plasma?
Omega-3 fatty acid biostatus can be estimated using red blood cell membranes or plasma – which method is more appropriate?

Increasing seed oil content in Brassica species through breeding and biotechnology Increasing the seed oil content of Brassica species and other major oilseed crops is of paramount importance in maintaining a future supply of vegetable oil for a growing global population.


Determination of oil content in an individual olive fruit: Hexane extraction vs. NMR
The performance of NMR and HIE for the determination of oil content in individual olive fruit has been compared in terms of repeatability, reproducibility, and trueness.

Effect of the ripening process on phenols of virgin olive oils: Mass spectrometry evaluation Olive oil phenols are of a great interest since they contribute to oxidation stability, provide many health benefits, and contribute to organoleptic characteristics of virgin olive oil. This study is focused on the effect of the ripening process on the phenolic fraction from a metabolomics point of view.

Aroma characterization of flaxseed oils: Headspace solid-phase microextraction and GC-olfactometry
Among various types of vegetable oils, flaxseed oil has a distinct flavor. In this study, 60 compounds of flaxseed oil pressed from three cultivars were tentatively identified and semi-quantified by HS-SPME-GC-MS.
