Abstract:

Spices has been added to foods since ancient times, not only as flavoring agent, but also as food preservatives and folk medicines. The present study focuses on thephytochemical analysis of five well known Indian spices namely clove, pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon and saffron. Phytochemical compositions of spices were carried out for the methanol, ethanol, acetone, chloroform and distilled water extracts. Qualitative phytochemical analysis of these spices extracts confirm the presence of various phytochemicals like alkaloids, carbohydrates, phenol, glycosides, terpanoids, flavonoids, saponins, proteins, steroids and tannins.


Keywords: Phytochemical analysis, alkaloids, Saffron, Nutmeg
