Abstracts

The proximate, mineral, functional properties, anti-nutrients and amino acid compositions of African mango (Irvingia gabonensis) seeds have been investigated. The results showed that seeds contained ash (2.49 g/100g), moisture (5.79 g/100g), protein (10.64 g/100g), fat (54.67 g/100g), fibre (8.35g/100g) and carbohydrate (18.67 g/100g). The predominant mineral was magnesium (54.53 mg/kg). Water absorption, oil absorption and oil emulsion capacities were relatively high while foaming capacity and least gelation concentration were low.

Keywords :

Chemical; amino acid; raw; defatted; African mango.
