Salicornia of applications:
The development of large tracts of beach to use saline water irrigated agriculture has a good economic value, and can be made to improve the coastal environment of social benefits. Salicornia cultivation of green vegetation, both as a coastline, but also to harvest high-quality edible oil seed processing, the stem can also improve the salinization of soil to field structure. 1. As a fuel. Salicornia oil flavored with walnuts, taste quite good, is worth a pound of olive oil. From the production point of view, seed production capacity of up to 120 to 150 kilograms per mu, better than sesame seeds. Seed oil content of 30%, with better economic development value. From the composition point of view, salicornia oil high in unsaturated fatty acids, oleic acid 12.5%, 74.0% linoleic acid, linolenic acid 2.6%, similar to safflower oil composition can be made of high-quality edible oil. Oleic acid, linoleic acid, linolenic acid is essential for growth and health of essential fatty acids, but not biosynthesis in the human body, and rich in oleic acid oil is high quality edible oil, also used as hair oil and anti-rust oil etc.; Linoleic acid is the treatment of coronary heart disease, hypertension an important.
Medicinal ingredients, the use of salicornia oil rich in linoleic acid characteristics, and corn germ oil, sunflower oil, rice bran oil, soybean oil, reconcile deployment into the nutrition oil, used for hypertension,
Coronary heart disease, can promote nutritionally balanced, healthy; Linolenic acid is a fat, lowering cholesterol and fat metabolism and promote the regeneration effect. Therefore, the nutrient-rich salicornia
Is expected soon to become China's most subtropical coastal areas of high potential economic value of oil crops.
