ABSTRACT
Tropical almond (Terminally catappa) fruit used in Eastern Nigeria have an impressive range of multipurpose medicinal uses with nutritional values. However, to be clinically used, more scientific data are needed. The goal of this study was to investigate the composition and nutritional properties of tropical almond. The seed of tropical almond was grind and analyzed for its proximate compositions and nutritional potentials and the results of this study showed that, the seed contained 4.8% moisture 3.0% ash, 2.0% crude fibre, 48.0% fat, and 22.07% carbohydrate. The results also showed a significant level of potassium, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium and iron as its mineral potentials. Therefore, the results showed that tropical almond seed is a good source rich in protein, carbohydrates, mineral and oil and as such can contribute useful amounts of essential nutrients to the diet of man.
