Perilla oil is obtained from the seeds of annual herbs of the genus Perilla, usually Perilla frutescens. The seeds contain 35 to 45 percent oil which is obtained by pressing. Perilla oil is used along with synthetic resins in the production of varnishes. Perilla oil dries faster than linseed oil and on drying forms a film that is harder and yellows more than that formed by linseed oil. The paint and varnish industry accounts for the largest usage. Perilla oil also is important in the manufacture of printing inks and linoleum, and in more ancient times was a critical component in creating durable earthen floors.
Perilla oil is a very rich source of alpha-linolenic acid. About 50 to 60% of perilla oil is alpha-linolenic acid. Alpha-linolenic acid is an n-3 (omega-3) all-cis polyunsaturated fatty acid containing 18 carbon atoms and three double bonds. It is also known as ALA; ALA, 18:3n-3; 9,12, 15-octadecatrienoic acid and (Z,Z, Z)-9,12,15-octadecatrienoic acid.
