Abstract:

Various nutrients in Vitis vinifera (Grape) grown in Bomo village, Zaria were analyzed. These include carbohydrate, lipids, Moisture Fibre, Ash, proteins and Minerals such as Ca, Fe, Cd. The Macro-Kjeldhal method was used for protein determination, soxhlet extraction for fat and Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer for mineral element determination. Anti-Nutrients determined were Oxalate, Phytic Acid and Cyanogenic Glycosides. The result showed that moisture content was 81.50%, lipid 0.18 and 0.44% ppm for calcium. The concentration of the anti-nutrient agreed with the WHO standard which was not harmful enough to prevent consumption of the fruit.
