Title

Proximate and Mineral Composition of Synsepalum Dulcificum Seed

Description

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).
