Abstract:
This study was carried out in the Eastern Black Sea region of Turkiye in 2004. In the study, botanical characteristics of some wild edible plants, consumed abundantly in the region, such as Trachystemon orientalis, Similax excelsa, Ornithogalum umbellatum, Amaranthus retroflexus, Aegopodium podograria and Urtica diocia were firstly determined. Thereafter, some chemical analyses were performed in order to determine nutritive values of these plants. In the study, dry matter, crude oil, ash, protein, nitrogen, Cu, Mn, Fe, Zn and vitamin C contents in the dried plant samples were evaluated. Nutritive values of these plants were compared with the other wild and cropped vegetables aspect of human nutrition. As a result, mineral contents and nutritional values of the plants evaluated in the present study were richer than that of the conventional vegetable crops.
