    In this study, three Safflower varieties (Carthamus tinctorius L.) Malawi, Giza1, Ethiopia were obtained from Egypt; of which the Ethiopian variety was analyzed for content of moisture, crude fiber, proteins, oils, carbohydrates, and ash. In addition, detailed studies were conducted on amino acid profile and minerals. Total phenols and fraction of phenolic compound were studied. The moisture content ranged from 5.24% to 6.23% and the protein content ranged from 14.70% to 16.21%, crude fiber 21.34% to 22.51 %,total lipid 32.47% to 35.12%, nitrogen free extract ranged from 22.47% to 26.11%, and ash 3.45% to 4.21% (on wet weight basis). Amino acid analyses revealed that Malawi, Giza1 and Ethiopian have higher level of arginine 5.28, 4.76, and 3.94 (g/100g) respectively. The total polyphenols content of defatted safflower meal was ranged from 452.52 mg to 677... Read More»
