Abstract:
The Anacardium occidentale L nut phytochemicals screening showed that with Glycosides (-), Tanins (+), flavonoids (+++), Alkaloids (++), Saponins (-) and the proximate composition (%) were as follows: moisture content (9.81 ± 0.2), ash content (3.48±0.3), crude fat (26.76± 0.3), crude protein (14.24 ± 0.01) carbohydrate (by difference) (44.98± 0.01) Calorific (Energy) value 482.18 Kcal. The mineral analysis (mg/100g) revealed that magnesium (3.51 ± 0.01), Manganese (2.00 ± 0.01), Nickel (3.23 ± 0.01) and Cobalt (0.13 ±0.01) while the phytochemical screening for Carica papaya seeds extracts also showed Glycosides (+), Tanins (++), flavonoids(++), Alkaloids(++), Saponins(-) for the moisture content (8.48 ± 0.3), ash content (3.95±0.01), crude fat (15.54± 0.2), crude protein (15.82 ± 0.01) carbohydrate (by difference) (41.60) Calorific (Energy) value 1546.87 Kcal. The mineral analysis (mg/100g) revealed that magnesium (3.0 ± 0.01), Manganese (0.21 ± 0.01), Nickel (3.43 ± 0.01) and Cobalt (0.17 ±0.01). The study therefore indicates that the Anacardium occidentale L nut and Carica may not provide all the nutrients required by human in the right proportion though it contains an appreciable quantity of some essential nutrients like Fats, Proteins, Carbohydrate and some minerals.
