ABSTRACT:
The phytochemical, proximate, minerals and vitamin composition of Piper guineese seeds were investigated using standard analysis. Result shows that the Piperguineese seeds contains the following phytochemicals respectively; phytate 0.39±0.01, Tannins 1.30±0.01, saponins 0.25±0.00, flavonoid 0.26±0.00, alkaloid 1.58±0.01, phenol 0.01±0.01, steroid 0.06±0.00. The crude protein was found to be (6.67±0.05),moisture content as 12.41±0.06 and. 314. 28±0.007 of potassium was obtained. Other important minerals like calcium, magnesium, sodium, phosphorus and iron were present as well as vitamins (niacin, thiamin, riboflavin, ascorbic acid and vitamin A).
