Information from a peer-reviewed scientific source. "Nutritional composition of Canarium pimela L. kernels":
"The kernels of Canarium pimela L....were analysed for their proximate composition, fatty acid composition, amino acid profile and mineral contents. The kernels were abundant in fats (59.7%) and proteins (23.9%). ...Oleic acid (43.0%) and linoleic acid (26.5%) constituted the main unsaturated fatty acids of the kernel oil, while palmitic acid (24.8%) was the major saturated fatty acid. The kernel proteins were rich in glutamic acid, arginine and aspartic acid (21.0%, 12.5%, and 6.80%, respectively), but not the limiting amino acid lysine (2.37%). ... The results indicated that C. pimela L. kernels may be a potential source of oil or protein for the human diet."
