Proximate and Mineral Element Composition of Bouillon Cubes Produced in Nigeria
E.O. Akpanyung

Abstract:
Three commercial brands of bouillon cubes were analyzed for proximate and elemental composition. The moisture content of the samples was found to range between 2.25 and 2.92%. Crude protein, crude fat and ash contents were: 10.50-17.50; 5.50-5.70 and 48.15-63.20% dry matter (DM) respectively. Mineral element analysis showed that the bouillon cubes contain low levels of sodium, iron and zinc. The clinical and nutritive implications of these results are discussed.
