Studies on Nutraceutical Properties of Annaona squamosa

Abstract

Annaona squamosa Linn. is a highly important plant with edible and medicinal values. Custard apple (Annaona squamosa Linn.) is considered as a well-balanced food which contains about 43% of edible part consisting of 1.60% protein, 21% sugars, 23.90% carbohydrates, 74.60% moisture, calcium, phosphorus, iron, etc. and with a total calorific value of 105 calories per 100 g of edible pulp. Besides these nutritional components it also contains a range of pharmaceutically important constituents like alkaloids, acetogenines, cyclopeptides, kaurane diterpinoids, etc., that can act as nutraceuticals. It has been reported that there is a huge postharvest loss of custard apple in various parts of country and therefore several products from custard apple have been under the process of development. In this study, an attempt has been taken to develop jam from the custard apple pulp.
