  Mucilage, a complex carbohydrate with a great capacity to absorb water, should be considered a potential source of industrial hydrocolloid.To examine moisture, dry weight, yield, ash and protein content, mucilaginous material were extracted from seeds by mixing the seeds with distilled water (1:20 w/v), stirring the seed-water mixtures for 3 h at 75C, separating the mucilage extract from the seeds by filtration through a muslin and were precipitated with 3 times its volumes of 96% ethanol. The precipitates were separated by centrifugation (6500 rpm, 15 min). The data were analyzed by one-way ANOVA and Tukey test and compared in one significant levels of p< 0.05. The linseed mucilage had 4.57% moisture, 95.43% dry weight, 8.6% yield, 5.8% ash and 12.3% protein. The basil mucilage had 4.86% moisture, 95.14% dry weight, 2.07% yield, 0.84% ash and 10.9% protein. The dragon head mucilage had 4.93% moisture, 95.06% dry weight, 1.88% yield, 0.28% ash and 45.7% protein. The quince mucilage had 4.38% moisture, 95.62% dry weight, 10.9% yield, 8.24% ash and 20.9% protein. Results showed significant differences in yield mucilage content between flaxseed and quince with together and with basil and dragon head. Significant differences in ash content were observed between flaxseed and quince with basil and dragon head. The dragon head had significant difference in protein content with flaxseed, basil and quince.
