Abstract:

Sikkim Himalaya has huge diversity of wild edible fruits which has immense nutritional values. Keeping the view of vital nutritional potential of wild fruits, present study had conducted at laboratory of Department of Horticulture, Sikkim University to assess the nutrient content like crude protein, crude fat, crude fibre, carbohydrate, energy value, ash, moisture and dry matter and some mineral elements like Ca, K, Mg, Na, Mo, Cu, Fe and Zn of two under utilized fruit crops viz. Baccaurea sapida and Eleaocarpus sikkimnesis from Sikkim Himalayas. The present study revealed that the fruit of Eleaocarpus sikkimnesis contains highest calorific value that is 389.56±3.29 kcal/kg as compared to Baccaurea sapida (377.44±3.26 kcal/g). Crude protein (6.93±0.03) and available carbohydrate (88.17±0.80) per cent was also noted highest in Eleaocarpus sikkimnesis. Minerals viz. potassium was noted as highest in both Baccaurea sapida (374.37± 9.68µg/L) and Eleaocarpus sikkimnesis (223.59± 6.21 µg/L). Other elements like Na, Cu, Mg, Ca, Fe, and Mn were noted significantly in a range of 7.99 to 37.29 µg/L in Baccaurea sapida which was highest than that of Eleaocarpus sikkimnesis.
