Proximate and Mineral Composition of Synsepalum Dulcificum Seed

Olaitan J. Jeremiah, Olapade R. Ilesanmi, Morakinyo M. Ige

Abstract: In this study, the proximate analysis of Synsepalum dulcificum seed was investigated and results showed that it has moisture content (38.08%), crude protein (19.47%), crude fat (11.94%), total carbohydrate (29.08%), crude fibre (0.66%) and ash (1.43%). The mineral content was also determined. It contains 569.500 ± 2.820, 72.170 ± 5.340, 25.000 ± 0.000 and 17.630 ± 0.390 mg/100 g of Potassium, Calcium, Sodium and Magnesium respectively. Other mineral elements found (in mg/ 100 g) were Iron (3.050 ± 0.490), Zinc (2.710 ± 0.009), Copper (2.420 ± 0.008), Manganese (2.380 ± 0.004), Nickel (0.240 ± 0.028) and Cadmium (0.013 ± 0.002).
