The tocopherol and tocotrienol composition of the Indian pulses Bengal gram (Cicer arietinum L.), blackgram (Vigna mungo L.), green gram (Vigna radiata L.) and horse gram (Dolichos biflorus L.[Macrotyloma uniflorum]), purchased from Mysore City, India, were determined. The total tocopherol content ranged from 230 to 1567 mg/100 g fat, while the tocopherol content of the pulses as a whole ranged from 6.76 to 12.54 mg/100 g seed. The fatty acid composition of the extracted fat was composed of substantial amounts of unsaturated fatty acids (Bengal gram, 88.7%; black gram, 82.9%; green gram, 64.3%; and horse gram, 66.9%). These pulses contained 3.8 to 49.1% linolenic acid in the fat.
