Abstract

Prickly pear (Opuntia ficus-indica L.) is a member of the Cactaceae family, originally grown in South America, and it is now distributed to various parts of the world, including the Middle East. Researchers have investigated the chemical composition and biological activities of different parts of the prickly pear plant, including cladodes, flowers, fruit, seeds, and seed oil. Among these, the oil extracted from the seeds has garnered attention for its nutritive value and potential health benefits. Here are some key points about prickly pear seed oil. Extraction Techniques: Prickly pear seed oil has been extracted using various techniques, ranging from conventional to advanced methods. Chemical Composition: The oil is characterized by its high linoleic acid content. Its composition can vary based on factors such as variety, environment, and extraction method. Health Benefits: Researchers have reported several health benefits associated with prickly pear seed oil. For future research, additional studies are needed to explore the mechanisms of action underlying the reported biological activities. These findings could pave the way for developing nutraceutical products aimed at preventing various chronic human diseases.

Keywords: Prickly pear oil, Nutraceuticals, Potential health benefits.
