Abstract
Proteins are the basic constituents of all living things and it is a nutritional essential for animal, which occurs in varying amounts in almost all of our food. Due to the relative abundance of protein in leaf material and basic need for protein in human diet scientists have tried to prepare edible proteins from green plant tissues. Leaves are a potential source of low coast proteins. Current study was made to determine the leaf protein content (LPC) in five different Curcuma species namely Curcuma longa L., C. inodora Blatt, C. neilgherrensis Wight, C. scaposa (Nimmo) Skornick. & M. Sabu and C. pseudomontana J. Grahm by heat coagulation method. Results showed that C. inodora contain 3.4 % as highest amount of leaf protein and C. neilgherrensis 1.6 % has minimum amount of protein. Whereas leaf of C. pseudomontana contains highest amount of fibre 12.30 % and C. inodora has minimum fibre content among the selected species.
