Abstract

The proximate analysis (moisture, crude protein, crude fat, mineral ash and total carbohydrates) in the kernels and flour of African Bush Mango ( ) were investigated. The results revealed that the kernels contained moisture (2.5 g/100 g), crude protein (8.9 g/100 g), crude fat (68.4 g/100 g), mineral ash (2.3 g/100 g) and total carbohydrates (18.7 g/100 g). The defatted flour was also found to contain moisture (6.4 g/100 g), crude protein (25.2 g/100 g), mineral ash (6.2 g/100 g) and total carbohydrates (62.2 g/100 g). The physico- chemical characteristics of its oil revealed that its oil has colour intensity of 3.4 Lovibond units, free fatty acids (2.72 g/100 g), peroxide value (0.5 meqO /Kg), iodine value (8.2 g I /100 g) and saponification value (256.5 mg KOH/g). The fatty acid composition of the fat showed that it is rich in myristic acid (61.7%) and contains substantial amount of medium chain lauric acid (27.6%).
