Abstract


The physicochemical characteristics, yield and fatty acid composition of pulp oils from bacaba (Oenocarpus distichus) pataua (Jessenia batana) and tucuma (Astrocaryum vulgare) and kernel fats from tucuma and muru-muru (Astrocaryum murumuru), all obtained from palm tree fruits collected in the brazilian rain forest (Amazonia region), were determined. The pulp oils belong to the oleic group (> 57% oleic acid) and the kernel fats to the lauric group (> 77% lauric acid).
