  Taurocholate binding capacity (TBC) and water holding capacity (WHC) of twelve wild leafy vegetables commonly consumed in northern Nigeria were studied. Taurocholate binding capacity varied between 17.36±2.58 to 31.02±1.21mg/g. Results obtained showed that Celtis africana had the highest taurocholate binding value of 31.02±1.21 mg/g followed by Hibiscus cannabimis (30.02±1.23) and Balanite aegyptiaca (30.12±3.23mg/g). The lowest taurocholate binding capacity value was observed in Apuim gravealens (21.73±0.25mg/g). While the highest water holding capacity value was observed in Celtis africana (2.24±0.28mg/g), closely followed by Balanite aegyptiaca (2.08±0.11mg/g) and Moringa oleifera (1.88±0.13mg/g). Corchorus oloitoms, Solanium nigrum and Mormodica basalmina had the lowest water holding capacity value (1.02±0.04, 1.21±0.01 and 1.27±0.05mg/g respectively). Thus indicating that these wild vegetables contain high fiber and have the potential to reduce cholesterol considerably from the body and other related diseases.
