This paper describes the implementation of a strategy to develop identification of Lupinus cultivars with fatty acid methyl esters relation about alkaloids. The genus Lupinus is abundant in Mexico, Lupinus uncinatus is an endemic plant of Mexico, and this has not been studied in terms of chemical composition and information about length, width and weight from seeds. This work is focused on analyzing the content of fatty acids methyl esters from L. uncinatus seeds. Where it was determined percentage oil as well as the concentration of twenty two fatty acid methyl esters and their corresponding equivalence TUFA (Total Saturated Fatty Acid), MUFA (Monounsaturated Fatty Acids) and PUFA (Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid). As a result of the analysis of lupine seeds, it was observed that the behavior of sweet spices versus bitter species has an ongoing relationship, with a higher content of PUFA (bitter) to higher MUFA (sweet) and measures of seeds.
