The tobacco is grown in many countries in the world and there are areas where the growing tobacco is only economically viable. Fermented tobacco leaf is a commercial product and it is used in the production of cigarettes in the tobacco processing industries. Only a small amount of best quality seeds are collected from fields for next year production, most of them are a by-product of tobacco leaves production. In our previous studies we found that the seeds of the three tobacco types cultivated in the Balkans, show potential as a nutrient product. In the present study the seeds from oriental tobacco were evaluated as a potential as renewable source of oil. The aim of the study is revealing the fatty acid composition of seeds of oriental tobacco. For qualitative and quantitative determination of fatty acids in oil from seeds, a GC/FID procedure was performed. The results show that the tobacco seed oil with its unique fatty acid composition may be regarded as special oil suitable for consumption after refining
