Abstract: Fatty acid profile data for refined cold-pressed Trichosanthes kirilowii Maxim. seed oil, in comparison to other commercially available oils — olive, rapeseed and camellia, are presented. Trichosanthes kirilowii Maxim. seed oil has high oleic and linoleic acid content and high polyunsaturated acid content. Squalene elutes as a distinct peak in the GC chromatograph. For a positive identification, MS detection was used. In the samples analyzed, squalene occurred in the range of 57.4–68.2 mg g−1.

Keywords: Trichosanthes kirilowii seed - fatty acids - squalene - GC
