Abstract

The seeds of Terminalia sp. were evaluated for their nutritional characters to utilize them for humans. Immediate examinations indicated that the seed contained 3.95% dampness, 24.78% unrefined protein, 5.36% debris, 3.94% rough fiber, 53.75% fats, 17.05% sugar and 549.65 Kcal Calorific esteem. The seeds were seen as great wellsprings of minerals. Potassium (9285 ± 0.22 mg) was the uppermost, followed in plunging request by Ca (837.20±1.28 mg), Mg (788.68 ± 0.21 mg) and Na (24.69± 0.32 mg). The oil was observed to be high in un immersed greasy acids, particularly oleic and linoleic.

Keywords:
Proximate composition, fatty acid
