Abstract

Passion fruit skin or rind (Passiftora edulis Sims.), which on an average, constitutes about SO per cent of the whole fruit and is considered as 'factory wasle' has been found. to be a fairly rich source or carbohydrates, ascorbic acid (7&.166 mg/l00 g.), protein (12-15 per cent on dry weight basis) and pectin (9-15 per cent D.W.B.). The pectin recovered from passion fruit skin is of good quality having 175-200 jelly grade and as such forms an important bye-product. Besides, passion fruit skin has good manurial value. Animal feeding experiments revealed that the replacement of rice in poor South Indian rice diet upto 20 per cent level with passion fruit skin Bour did not produce any adverse effect on the growth rate and general health of albino rats.
