Abstract: In this present study leaves of Terminalia bellerica and Artocarpus heterophyllus were collected in order to carry out proximate analysis. The present study revealed the percentage proximate composition of Terminalia bellerica leaves that contain dry matter (86.20 ± 1.12), crude protein (13.10 ± 1.33), crude fat (2.5 ± 0.28), crude fibre (1.71 ± 0.23), NFE (74.9 ± 1.33), AIA (2.2 ± 0.17).While dry matter, crude fat, crude fibre, NFE, AIA content of Artocarpus heterophyllus leaves were found to be 84.20 ± 0.69, 2.5 ± 0.10,2.76 ± 0.04, 65 ± 2.18, 4.4 ± 0.32, respectively. It was found that both the plant leaves are good source of calcium and phosphorus. Therefore, Terminalia bellerica and Artocarpus heterophyllus leaves have good nutritional value and hold their potential for value addition and nutraceutical development.
