Research Progress on Extraction and Application of Peony Seed Oil
Peony seed oil contains linolenic acid, oleic acid, linoleic acid, palmitic acid, stearic acid and other components. The content of unsaturated fatty acid is more than 90%, of which the content of alpha-linolenic acid is about 40%, which is much higher than that of olive oil. Peony seed oil has high research value. The main components, extraction methods and applications of peony seed oil were reviewed. The future research and development directions of peony seed oil were prospected.
Key words: peony seed oil, extraction of alpha-linolenic acid, application of peony seed oil
