Abstract: The present investigation was carried out to study physicochemical and mineral composition of gardencress seed and black gram split. The different physicochemical and mineral properties of gardencress seed viz, moisture, fat, protein, carbohydrates, ash and minerals (Ca, K,Fe) were determined. Result obtained for proximate composition of gardencress seed revealed that moisture content was 4.7%, fat 27.12%, protein 19.68%, carbohydrates 35.28%, crude fiber 6.8%, and ash 4.7%. Mineral composition shown that the highest amount of potassium 780, calcium 270, and iron 7.4 (mg/100g) respectively. Similarly, black gram split reported moisture content was 10.7%, fat 1.5%, protein 23.7%, carbohydrates 57.06%, crude fiber 0.7%, and ash 3.3% and minerals like calcium content was 138, phosphorus 370 anhd iron 3.7 (mg/100g). The nutritional value of gardencress seed and black gram split can have better suitability in value addition of food products.
