Deep-sea fish oil in plants-perilla seed oil

July 20, 2021
Perilla is also known as Nectarine Seed, Chisu, Red Su, etc. It is an annual herbaceous plant in the Lamiaceae family. Perilla is a medicinal and edible plant with high utility value.
The seeds of perilla are called perilla seeds. Perilla seeds are rich in fat and protein. The protein content is about 15-25%, and the oil content is 30%-50%.
Perilla seed oil is also called Perilla oil. The main fatty acid content of perilla seed oil from high to low is 44%~64% a-linolenic acid, 14%~17% linoleic acid, 13%~15% oleic acid, Palmitic acid is 6%-~7%, stearic acid is 1%~2%. Its fatty acid composition features a very high content of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (a-linolenic acid), which is higher than that of linseed oil. α-linolenic acid is a polyunsaturated fatty acid with important physiological functions. The unsaturated fatty acid cannot be synthesized by itself in the mammalian body, and must rely on the supply of food to be converted into eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in the body, so as to play a role in the body. Perilla seed oil has the reputation of "plant deep-sea fish oil".

Because perilla seed oil is rich in α-linolenic acid, commonly known as "brain gold", α-linolenic acid is a necessary factor for maintaining the function of the brain and nervous system. It has obvious effects on enhancing intelligence and memory, and protecting eyesight. Especially for vegetarians because they do not eat deep-sea fish oil, it is a very good choice.
There are two processes of cold pressing and hot pressing of perilla seed oil. The processing technology of perilla seed oil is similar to the ordinary high-oil pressing process except for peeling.

Su seed oil is not suitable for cooking and frying. It can be used as a cold dressing oil (salad oil), can also be drunk directly, or as a supplement to the linolenic acid in the blended oil. It is rich in linolenic acid. The storage time is relatively short, generally not more than one year.
Perilla seed oil is a good source of α-linolenic acid. Large-scale production of perilla seed oil is not only conducive to protecting the health of the people, but also has huge potential for business opportunities. As people continue to deepen their understanding of the economic benefits of perilla and the health benefits of perilla seed oil, as well as technological advancement, the prospects for the development of perilla seeds will become broader.
