Proximate composition, mineral elements, anti-nutrients (toxicants) and lipid characteristics were determined for almond (Terminalia catappa) seeds. The results obtained showed the proximate composition of 25.23% moisture; 5.00% ash; 32.73% lipid; 33.66% crude fibre; 3.11% crude protein; 25.47% carbohydrate and caloric value 534.200 kcal. Mineral elements determined were P, Na, K, Fe, Mg and Ca, while the anti-nutrients evaluated were hydrogen cyanide, oxalate and tannin. Almond seed oil was…

Proximate Analysis and Determination of Some Selected Vitamins and Minerals Contents of Terminalia catappa Endocarp Flour

Terminalia catappa wastes can be sources of nutrients, mineral elements and vital vitamins that were nutritionally important for body health, therefore, proper exploration of these waste will result in proper tropical almond wastes utilization and help in solid waste management (waste reduction), thereby resulting environmental sustainability.
