Determination of Nutritional Status of Some Vegetables Grown with Different Water Resource Applications in Sargodha, Pakistan
Different Nutritional Values of Some Vegetables
Proximate and nutritional concentrations of some vegetables irrigated with different types of water were determined in present study. Allium fistulosum showed highest concentrations of N and P at site3 and site1, respectively. Highest ash concentration in Trigonella foenum-graecum demonstrated high mineral concentration of this vegetable. The crude protein contents ranged from 15.38% to 26.19% and crude fiber contents ranged from 12.81% to 16.73% in all vegetables. The tannins and saponins contents showed significant (P<0.05) result among all vegetables at all sites. Proximate and nutrient analysis of cultivated vegetables can help us to determine the health benefits achieved from their use in marginal communities.
