Abstract:

Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) is an important seed spice crop and is largely grown in India. It grows well under diverse and a wide range of conditions; with moderate tolerance to drought and salinity. Fenugreek also has an exceptional nutritional and pharmaceutical profile. Fenugreek seeds contain a substantial amount of fiber, phospholipids, glycolipids, oleic acid, linolenic acid, linoleic acid, choline, vitamins A, B1, B2, C, nicotinic acid, niacin and many other elements. The micronutrients perform various essential roles in the body. It is, therefore, essential to ensure that the diet must include the recommended dietary allowance of the micronutrients. Commercially, it has high economic value as food, fodder and medicine. Its leaf and seed is used to prepare extract and powder for medicinal and cosmetic purpose. The knowledge about the nutrient diversity of different genotypes is very important for broaden the genetic base, heterotic pooling and reduction of genetic erosion. The review on nutritional potentials and nutrient profile will give insight into morphological parameters and source sink relationship to formulate sound breeding programme for qualitative and quantitative improvement of fenugreek.
