Determination of Mineral Composition of Some Wild Edible Plants Consumed by Bodos of Assam, North-East India

Abstract

In the present study, the macro and micro elements present in eleven wild edible plants consumed by Bodos of Assam from North-East India were assessed. The study showed variable amounts of minerals content among the plant species which are presented herein and discussed. The heavy metals like cadmium and arsenic were not detected in the plant species. The investigation showed that these non-conventional food sources are good sources of minerals and consumption of such vegetables can replace the malnutrition problems.
