Fruit Processing , Health Supplements ,Indian gooseberry seeds, Nutrients
Global fruit consumption is increasing significantly worldwide due to its disease prevention and health benefits due to the presence of nutrients and other bioactive compounds needed for human well-being. Fruit processing waste is highly perishable and seasonal and is a problem for pollution monitoring agencies. In some fruits, seeds make up about 20% of the total weight. This study aims to investigate the nutritional composition of Indian goose fruit seeds. The seeds of Indian gooseberry seeds were extracted and analyzed for their Macro and micronutrient content. The results showed that the estimated ash and moisture content per 100 gm was 3.76% and 7.16% respectively. The estimated amount of carbohydrate content was 17.07 g, Protein 9.25 g, fat 5.45 g, and fiber content 3.18 g, respectively. Calcium and iron content was moderate at about 23mg/100gm and 7.73mg /100gm of the seed powder; whereas the seeds had higher amounts of phosphorus with an average value of 388.4mg/100gm. The selected sample proved to have a high content of potassium of 310mg/100gm. Therefore, it means that 20 g of Indian goose fruit seed powder will meet a quarter of the potassium requirement. The sodium content was found to be 4.25mg/100gm, which is quite a moderate amount compared to other fruit seeds. Current study results show that seeds can be good health supplements and food ingredients if used and handled properly. Indian gooseberry seeds is nutritionally valuable based on their nutrients.
