Milen Dimov, Zhana Petkova, Magdalena Stoyanova, Krasimira Dobreva and Albena Stoyanova
Abstract: The chemical composition of dill fruits (Anethum graveolens L.) originating in Bulgaria, France and Romania was determined. The composition of the lipid fraction and its fatty acid composition are determined. The fruits of France are the richest of essential oil (5.0%).The amount of protein ranges from 19.6 to 20.2% for fruits of different origins. The mineral composition was identified; the highest was calcium content (0.8-0.9%) of macroelements, and – iron (94.3 – 102.2 mg/kg) of microelements.
