Biochemical composition of some unconventional Indian leafy vegetables

Biochemical composition of some unconventional Indian leafy vegetables

Narendra Deva Journal of Agricultural Research 3(2): 161-164

The nutritional attributes of 15 unconventional leafy vegetables (both cultivated and wild) consumed in different parts of rural India, were determined. Among different vegetables under investigation, the leaves of Moringa oleifera, Glyine max and Solanum nigrum had a high protein value as well as low fibre content which could make them suitable for the extraction of leaf proteins for use as a low-cost source of proteins.
