Refined Wheat-germ Oil BP Grade

Ph Eur

Fatty oil obtained from the germ of the grain of Triticum aestivum L. by cold expression or by other suitable mechanical means and/or by extraction. It is then refined. A suitable antioxidant may be added.

Appearance: Clear, light yellow liquid.
Solubility: Practically insoluble in water and in alcohol, miscible with light petroleum (40°C to 60°C).
Relative density: About 0.925.
Refractive index: About 1.475.

A. Identification of fatty oils by thin-layer chromatography (2.3.2). The chromatogram obtained is similar to the type chromatogram for wheat-germ oil.
B. It complies with the test for composition of fatty acids (see Tests).

Acid value: Maximum 0.9. If intended for use in the manufacture of parenteral dosage forms: maximum 0.3.
Peroxide value: Maximum 10.0. If intended for use in the manufacture of parenteral dosage forms: maximum 5.0.
Unsaponifiable matter: Maximum 5.0 per cent, determined on 5.0 g.
Alkaline impurities: It complies with the test for alkaline impurities in fatty oils.
Composition of fatty acids by Gas chromatography:
Composition of the fatty-acid fraction of the oil:ı
palmitic acid : 14.0 per cent to 19.0 per cent;
stearic acid : maximum 2.0 per cent;
oleic acid : 12.0 per cent to 23.0 per cent;
linoleic acid : 52.0 per cent to 59.0 per cent;
linolenic acid : 3.0 per cent to 10.0 per cent;
eicosenoic acid: maximum 2.0 per cent.
Brassicasterol: Maximum 0.3 per cent of brassicasterol in the sterol fraction of the oil.
Water: If intended for use in the manufacture of parenteral dosage forms: maximum 0.1 per cent, determined on 5.00 g. Use a mixture of equal volumes of methanol R and methylene chloride as solvent.

In an airtight, well-filled container, protected from light.
