Phytoestrogens are polyphenolic non-steroidal plant derived compounds with estrogen-like biological activity, which have been associated with a variety of changes in the reproductive system and certain hormone-dependent diseases, such as prostate cancer, colon cancer, breast cancer and PMS (15,16) Essential fatty acids, such as palmitic acid
, oleic acid, linoleic acid, stearic acid were also found in V.

Registration of N79-2077-12 and N87-2122-4, two soybean germplasm lines with reduced palmitic acid
in seed oil.
was present in a concentration of about 7% of the dried extract.
As anticipated from the correlation analysis, individuals in the two highest quintiles for percentage of palmitic acid
had significantly decreased serum adiponectin concentrations compared with the remaining individuals [13.
The high palmitic acid
content of palm oil is used for aeration of fat/sugarmixers, such as those in baking.
Non edible derivatives of palm oil include stearin, fatty acid, oleic acid, stearic acid, lauric acid, palmitic acid
, glycerine, glycerol, fatty alcohol, capric acid, soap, soft detergent and stearic candle, Edible products are olein, margarine, shortening and butter.

20% to 70% for the fatty acid palmitic acid
Chevreul was the first to isolate the most common of these fatty acids: stearic acid, palmitic acid
, and oleic acid.
The study Palmitic acid
(CAS 57-10-3) Market Research Report 2012' presents an overview of the Palmitic acid
market globally and regionally by contemplating and analyzing its parameters.
8 % keto fatty acids with high content of methyl ester of palmitic acid
66% of saturated fatty acids, among which palmitic acid
, the most prevalent, with an average of 25.
In a model of intra-abdominal fat accumulation it was recently suggested that enrichment of cardiolipin with saturated fatty acid, such as palmitic acid
, results in a more peroxidation resistant cardiolipin and therefore a reduced dissociation of cyt c from cardiolipin .
It was noted that manool, E- nerolidol, germacrene D, benzyl benzoate, palmitic acid
, methyl palmitate d-cadinene and anthranilic acid, were found as the major components in essential oil.
