Monodora tenuifolia seeds, obtained from University of Ibadan premises in Ibadan, Nigeria, have been subjected to standard analytical technique in order to evaluate their proximate composition, physicochemical properties and contents of nutritional valuable elements. The average values of the proximate analysis on dry matter basis were 32.09 ± 1.58 g/100 g dry matter (DM) crude oil, 8.40 ± 0.25 g/100 g DM crude protein, 16.20 ± 1.85 g/100 g DM moisture, 2.85 ± 0.40 g/100 g DM ash, 33.91 ± 1.42… CONTINUE READING
