Abstract

Ten genotypes of mulberry leaves were evaluated for proximate principles, vitamins (ascorbic
acid and beta-carotene) and minerals (iron, zinc, manganese, copper and calcium). Protein content
of all the genotypes ranged from 6.38 to 10.73 %. Ascorbic acid and beta-carotene contents
ranged from 142.99 to 370.08 and 3.91 to14.79 mg/100g, respectively in the fresh leaves of
mulberry. Total iron, zinc, manganese, copper and calcium ranged from 3.81 to 6.80, 0.99 to
1.26, 0.68 to 1.30, 0.07 to 0.30, and 236.89 to 730.11 mg/100g, respectively
