Quality of oil is depending on the fatty acid composition. This is based on the palmitic, stearic, oleic and linoleic acid. Sesame is oldest indigenous oilseed crop of India it is grown during kharif season in most part of the country. Its seeds contain between 50 and 54% of very good semi-drying oil, mostly with palmitic and stearic acids. In this research, variation in oil content, oil yield, chemical composition and fatty acid composition of 7 different TKG-22, GT-10, PKVNT-11, PRACHI, HT-2, DSS-9 and TMV-7 sesame verities were investigated. The oil content varied 39.33 to 46.4. percentage content of, linoleic acid, palmitic, Stearic acids, oleic acid and linolinic acid in the seed oil ranged between 31.84 to 41.73 %, 8.33 to10.15% , 5.34 to7.0 and respectively. Oleic acids 39.88 to 48.81%, linoleic acids 0.25 to 0.50% and palmitoleic 0.10 to 0.13 % acids were the minor fatty acids of sesame as sesame were about 24.3% which increases the suitability of the sesame oil for human consumption. The oil could be useful as edible oils and for industrial applications. In conclusion, the fatty acid composition of determinate types was found to be satisfactory.
