ABSTRACT

................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Fruits are important ingredients in the human diets. Due to their high nutritive value, they make significant nutritional contribution to human well-being. The perishable fruits are available as seasonal surpluses during certain parts of the year in different regions and are wasted in large quantities due to unawareness, know-low for proper handling, distribution, marketing and storage. To create awareness regarding nutritive and medicinal values from these fruits, present investigation was carried out.  The selected wild edible fruits were (Ficus racemosa, Elaegnus conferta, Antidesma ghasembilla, Grewia tillifolia and Scleichera oleosa) in their mature and ripen stage.. Various parameters were carried out like moisture, dry matter, carotenoids, carbohydrate (reducing sugar, starch, soluble sugar) antioxidant enzymes like catalase, peroxidase, superoxide dismutase. All five wild edible fruits were rich in vitamins, proteins and in antioxidant enzymes. The nutritional and phytochemical composition of fruits indicates that, these neglected wild edible fruits can be a valuable source of nutrients under famine conditions and high levels of some vitamins, antioxidants and can be used to prevent diseases.

 

Keywords: Antioxidants, Phytochemicals, Wild edible fruits.
