Abstract

This study was carried out in Khartoum state –Sudan, the aims of this study is to identifying the nutrient value of new (Adansonia,digitata) baobab fruit pulp and seed compared with old baobab fruit pulp and seed , To determine the proximate composition, mineral content and vitamin c .The fats and protein contents were determined by extraction and micro Kjeldahl method respectively, while Sodium, Potassium, magnesium and Calcium were determined by using flame photometer. The results obtained showed that the seeds contained high protein (18.83%), carbohydrate (48.93%), fat (8.40%), Ash (2.24%), crude fiber (12.65%), vitamin c (76.25) and moisture content (8.53%). The concentration of some minerals in milligram per hundred gram (mg/100g) in seed as present in the ash of baobab fruit pulp and seeds were: Na (52.84), K (488.75),mg (530.18) and Ca (392.08) this value is degreased infruit pulp except Na(51.64) decreased. The value of old fruit pulp and seed is decreased than new pulp and seed. The results showed that baobab fruit pulp could serve as a supplementary source of carbohydrate, mineral, protein and vitamin c and seed is good source of oil, fiber, carbohydrate, mineral, protein, and vitamin c and lose notional value during storage. Database of this study will contribute in improve the health and nutrition of population.
