Ceiba pentandra is a tropical tree of the order Malvales and of the family Malvaceae which was previously separated from the family Bombacaceae. Its leaf has been found to possess many medicinal and nutritional properties. Ceiba Pentandra is huge, wide and normally found in the wild forest of West Africa in the tropical forest regions. This work was carried out to investigate the potential nutritional values of Ceiba pentandra leaf with a view to evaluating the nutritional importance of the… Expand
