The appearance of Bromelia laciniosa depends on various factors, like season and soil, but will typically look like a squat, yellowish-green, thorny shrub with streaks of purple and pink that run along its leaves and converge with the striking flower of the plant. The species are A. Overall, Bromelia laciniosa is a plant that is tailored for specific conditions and can be a valuable resource for a farmer.

Figure 1which belong to the subfamily Bromelioideae, and Encholirium spectabile Mart. Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer.

Response of serum lipids and lipoproteins of man to beta-sitosterol and safflower oil—A long term study. Campesterol Compound 15 is a common phytosterol found in many edible plants. The family is currently divided into eight subfamilies [ 1 ], and the two species, Bromelia laciniosa Mart. Recent development in cryoprobe technology has made it possible to characterized complex natural products with concentrations as low as in the micromolar range.

Comprehensive study of valuable lipophilic phytochemicals in wheat bran. Find articles by George W. Structures of non-polar compounds identified from the leaves of B.

From the edible bromrlia of B. Aside for subsistence, Bromelia laciniosa can be sold on the market, lacibiosa for its flour or fibers or even its stalks to use for building material. Strong fibers can also be extracted from Bromelia laciniosa ; the blades of the plant are cut, its thorns removed, its leaves fermented for several days to loosen up the fibers, and then its stalks are dried and readied for fiber extraction; a caveat though is that this process gives off a pungent odor, so this task should be performed in a contained area.


Extraction and Concentration Dried and pulverized leaves of B. Fatty Acids and Their Derivatives Four fatty acids, palmitic acid, oleic acid, stearic acid and 9,12 -octadecadienoic acid, were identified from all three investigated species Figure 3.

Individual mass spectra are shown in Figures S3—S Extensive regional droughts are already a major problem on all inhabited continents and severe regional droughts are expected to become an increasing and extended problem in the future. Of particular importance may be that the chain lengths of the alkanes identified in B. In current literature, NMR spectroscopy has been successfully lacinjosa in the evaluation of metabolites of plant extracts NMR plant metabolomics [ 43 ]. Complete assignments are presented in Tables S1—S3.

Bromeliaceae also have a Crassulacean acid metabolism CAM photosynthesis, where the stomata remain shut during daytime to avoid evaporation. Retrieved from ” https: The efficiency with which alkanes might contribute to a cholesterol-lowering effect of waxes is regulated by limited absorption and the need for hydroxylation of these compounds.

Flowers, fruit and leaves from B.

Five of the seven triterpenoids have previously been identified from other ladiniosa of the family Bromeliaceae Compounds 15 — According to Vetter et al. Phytochemical screening, antioxidant and antibacterial activity of extracts from the flowers of Neoglaziovia variegata Bromeliaceae J.


The first flavonoid isolated from Bromelia laciniosa Bromeliaceae J. Received Jun 30; Accepted Sep 2.

Very long-chain alkanes VLCA are considered to be of interest from a dietary point of lsciniosa because their long-chain alcohol metabolites may contribute to the cholesterol-lowering effect associated with the intake of plant waxes [ 25 ]. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This page was last edited on 23 Marchat The abundant starch, lzciniosa, fiber, and, especially, calcium content of Bromelia laciniosa makes it an attractive famine crop.

Bromeliaceae Several recent severe regional droughts have led to increased interest in exploiting drought resistant edible plants as human food sources and as forage for domesticated animals. The nutritional value of E. Selected crosspeaks are assigned. Bromelia laciniosa is native to Brazil and Argentina but cultivated in many other places.

It is therefore unsurprising that campesterol has been identified from six Bromeliaceae species. However, the vitamin has been found in the distant relative A.

Table 1 Compounds identified from hexane extracts of leaves of B. These fatty acids are common phytochemical constituents from several bromrlia species with significant nutritional value including wheat [ 24 ]. NMR plant metabolomics is, among others, a complementary strategy for identification of known plant metabolites of plant-derived extracts and allows for the detection of signals of all compounds present in the sample at sufficient quantities to be detected.
