Abstract:
Fatty Acid (FA) composition of rosette and stalk leaves from Borago officinalis L. collected at intervals over the growing season from two different regions in Tunisia was studied. Total Fatty Acids (TFA) amount was higher in Semmech than Amdoun for both rosette and stalk leaves. In both regions, TFA amount was maximal in December, minimal at the beginning of November for rosette. In stalk leaves, TFA amount was higher at the end of March and lower in May. The predominant FA in rosette and stalk leaves were γ-linolenic, stearidonic, palmitic (C16:0), linoleic (LA, C18:2 ω6) and γ-linolenic acids while palmitoleic, oleic, stearic and arachidic acids were the minor ones.
