Four classes of sterol lipids--free sterols, sterol esters, sterylglycosides, and acylsterylglycosides--were isolated from pea seeds, identified, and examined for fatty acid and sterol composition as well as sugar constituents. beta-Sitosterol was the principal free sterol. The sterol esters were mainly composed of linoleic acid and beta-sitosterol, sterylglycosides of glucose and beta-sitosterol, and acylsterylglycosides of palmitic acid, glucose, and beta-sitosterol.
