PROXIMATE ANALYSIS OF LEAF AND STEM OF KEDROSTIS FOETIDISSI-MA(JACQ.)COGN.

AMUTHA.M* LALITHA.P

The nutritive value of Kedrostis foetidissima was investigated through proximate analysis of leaf and stem by the standard methods. The percentage moisture, total ash, acid insoluble ash, water soluble ash, fiber, fat and wax contents were evaluated and compared. Results of this analysis disclose the moisture (6.38 %), total ash (14.38%), acid insoluble ash (24.84 %), crude fiber (79.96 %) contents of stem to be comparatively of higher percentage than that of leaf. Water soluble ash (88.44%), fat and wax (23.92%) con-tent of leaf was higher than stem.
