Abstract: Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench) is one of the staple food crops consumed by large population in India. Sorghum has several varieties throughout the world from which Sweet sorghum var. PVR SG-101 (Manwat hurda) is a hybrid variety of sorghum which is sweeter in taste prepared to enhance the consumer acceptability due to its sweet taste. In present investigation, efforts were made to evaluated physico-chemical and nutritional profile of sweet sorghum. The results revealed that sweet sorghum contained 8.36% crude protein, 3.21% crude fat, 27.13% carbohydrates and 3.21% crude fibre. Sweet sorghum is significantly higher in reducing sugar (3.61) and total sugar (4.24%) imparting its sweet taste. Mineral profile analysis revealed that sweet sorghum contained Calcium 70, Magnesium 170, Potassium 440 and iron 4.0 mg/100g respectively.
