ABSTRACT

Cassia fistula and Albizia lebbeck used in traditional medicine for the treatment of various ailments. This study aimed to assess the proximate composition; phytochemicals screening and antioxidant activities in both seeds Cassia fistula and Albizia lebbeck. These seeds are not only help to prevent many diseases but also used as functional ingredient. This study includes the estimation of moisture, ash, fat, fiber, protein, CHO. Mineral content (calcium and iron) of Cassia fistula and Albizia lebbeck seeds powder were determined by atomic absorption spectrophotometry (AAS). The aqueous extract was screened for the qualitative phytochemical analysis. Antioxidant activity was determined by standard method. Results indicate that proximate composition was not similar in both seeds. Both seeds showed a high content of calcium (927.95±6.11 and 321.41±0.91 mg/100g) and iron (178.31±1.63 and 98.32±0.02 mg/100g). Protein was also high in both seeds (26.43±0.30 and 27.85±0.90 g/100g). Seeds were also contains many phytochemicals and high antioxidant activity. Protein, minerals, phytochemicals and antioxidants helps to maintain nutritional status as well as prevent various diseases. These seeds also help in reducing some metabolic disorders and can be used as dietary supplement. These seeds could be exploited as a non conventional source of nutrients, phytochemicals and antioxidants.

Keywords: Proximate composition, Phytochemicals, Antioxidants, Cassia fistula, Albizia lebbeck.
