  • ISSN : 0525-5090



The lipid content of phane (worm) was investigated by first extracting with organic solvents and profiling the fatty acids by GLC. High C16:0 quantities were apparent reaching levels of 31.9 g/l00g fatty acids. Substantial quantities of unsaturated fatty acids oleic, linoleic and linolenic were observed constituting altogether 47.7 g/l00g fatty acids.
