Comparative Analysis of Functional and Nutritive Values of Amla (Emblica officinalis) Fruit, Seed and Seed Coat Powder

Poonam Mishra and Charu Lata Mahanta

In present investigation amla seed and seed coat was investigated separately for their compositional, functional property. Water retention capacity and swelling capacity of seed coat powder was higher than seed powder. Among the three, fruit powder showed strongest free radical (DPPH) activity followed by seed coat whereas, seed had only 30% of DPPH* scavenging activity. Both seed and seed coat powder were found to be good sources of P, K, Mg, Fe etc. Seed powder had high value of P(395.44 mg/100 g) in comparison to fruit powder and seed coat powder while seed coat was found to be a good source of Ca, Cr and Mn. The Total Phenolic Content (TPC) of seed coat and seed powder was lower than fruit powder. The 9, 12, 15, octadecatrienoic acid (z, z, z) and tetradecanoic acid were the major fatty acids present in seed and seed coat.
