Abstract:The proximate, micronutrient and amino acid profile of roasted and germinated breadnut seed flour were evaluated. Fresh mature fruits (1.5 kg) of breadnut were purchased from Relief market in Imo State, Nigeria. The breadnut seeds were divided into three portions for different unit operations, namely raw, roasted and germinated. Samples were analyzed for proximate, minerals and amino acids compositions. Statistical significance was set at p < 0.05. Protein (13.80%) and fat (7.90%) content were significantly hi…
