Triglyceride molecular species of safflower oil was examined from the profiles of triglyceride composition and the fatty acid at ${\beta}-position$ of glycerol. From the results, triglycerides were found to be 26kinds in safflower oil. The major triglyceride molecular species in safflower oil were identified to be PLL; 10,4%, OLL; 22.3%, LLL; 31.95%. Triglyceride molecular species of safflower oil characterized that species occupied by unsaturated fatty acids at ${\beta}-position$ were more than 90%.
