Abstract:

The study entitled “Nutritional evaluation and value addition of fenugreek seeds (Trigonella foenum graecum) was undertaken to determine the physic-chemical quality of five varieties of fenugreek seeds namely NDM-120, NDM-116, NDM-80, NDM-2 and NDM-1. The samples were procured from Vegetable Seed Farm of Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology, Kumarganj, Ayodhya. Physical parameters of grain were determined. The thousand grain weight of variety NDM-120 was maximum (14.06) followed by NDM-116 (13.43), NDM-80 (11.90), NDM-1 (11.90) and NDM-2 (10.82). Bulk density and per cent porosity of varieties varied significantly and ranged from 0.78 to 0.81 (g/dl) and 34.93 to 40.18 (%). The chemical composition of varieties determined. Moisture content was maximum in NDM-116 (7.53) and minimum in NDM-80 (6.59). Protein content was maximum in NDM-2 (39.2%) and minimum in NDM-1 (21.97%).
