ABSTRACT

Studies were carried out on the proximate analysis, phytochemical screening and mineral compositions of Terminalia bellirica seed (Bahera). The proximate analysis of the seeds revealed 8.65 % moisture, 91.35 % dry matter, 6.46 % ash, 93.54 % organic matter, 4.19 %crude protein, 32.02 % crude fiber, 40.12 % carbohydrate, and 0.67% nitrogen content respectively. From total ash, the water soluble part was 52.58 % and acid insoluble ash content was 3.47%. Food energy of the seed was found 187.35cal/gm. The presence of some phytochemicals like alkaloids, saponins and flavonoids explained the medicinal action of the plant encountered in its therapeutic uses. The seed samples contains reasonable amount of essential mineral contents needed for the body such as potassium, sodium, calcium, iron, magnesium, aluminum, zinc, copper, manganese, lead, nickel, chromium and cadmium content. The mineral elemental concentration carried out showed K having the highest concentration (190.84 mg/kg) while Cd and Cr concentration was the lowest (0.002 mg/kg).
