Dioclea reflexa seeds belonging to the family called Fabaceae were evaluated for its oil content and fatty acid composition chemical composition. Proximate results indicated that D. reflexa seeds contained ash (9.17±0.01%), crude fat (10.65±0.01%), fiber (9.25±0.03%), moisture (13.30±0.01%), crude protein (26.00±0.43%), carbohydrate (31.63±0.12%) and calorific value (1372.07 KJ/100g. Minerals analysis showed that D. reflexa seeds contained potassium (4.09±0.04), sodium (4.88±0.25) magnesium (0… CONTINUE READING
