A GC/MS method was developed for the determination of the fatty acid composition of 25 corn samples of 5 corn inbred lines. Significant differences between saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acid of corn inbred lines flour was observed. The PUFA concentration in the different inbred lines flour samples was three times higher than SFA. In selection, choosing inbred lined with good quality traits can improve the nutritional and functional quality of the corn flour.
