Abstract: The preliminary phytochemical analysis of Artocarpus heterophyllus (Jackfruit), Carica papaya (Papaya) and Terminalia bellerica (Bhumura) revealed the presence of tannin, saponin, flavonoid, terpenoid, alkaloid, steroid, glycosides and protein etc. in all the three plant leaves. The quantitative analysis of tannin, saponin and flavonoid of A. heterophyllus (Jackfruit), C. papaya (Papaya) and T. bellerica (Bhumura) were analyzed in methanolic extract. Out of the three plants, T. bellerica contains highest concentration of saponin (2.67±0.07 mg/100g DW) and Flavanoid (0.825 ±0.00 mg QE/g) of extract. The tannin concentration was highest in C. papaya (0.638 ± 0.05%).
