Title

NUTRITIONAL COMPOSITION OF DRIED CURRY LEAF POWDER (Murraya koenigii)

Abstract

Medicinal plants have long been documented with multiple health benefits and scaling down the risk associated with non-communicable diseases. Curry leaves (Murraya Koenigii) have a long history of being used as a flavoring agent in many of South Indian recipes. Documented studies claim the leaves to be a rich source of various nutrients. However, there is a dearth of research data on the nutrient composition of the leaves in dried form. Sun and shade dried curry leaves collected from Alwar city; a district in Rajasthan State, India were analyzed for its proximate, vitamin and mineral composition. The proximate analysis exhibited the dried leaves to contain very less amount of moisture (5.86%), fat (2.43%) and protein (3.81%). The carbohydrate content of the leaves was very good (60.24 gm/100 gm), with moderate amount of ash (9.68 gm/100gm) and fibre (5.22 gm/100gm). The content of vitamin A was very high (100989 IU) but that for other vitamins (B, C and E) was very low in the dehydrated form. The mineral content showed the presence of calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium and zinc. The β-sitosterol content of the leaves was estimated to be 0.43 mg/gram of dried powder. The results thus indicate the leaves to be a good source of nutrients essential for the maintenance of health and wellness and can be a good supplement for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity and osteoporosis and hence can be incorporated in routine diet.
