Abstract
Piper betel leaf of its green heart shaped leaves belongs to the family Piperaceae rich in macro and micro nutrients, vitamins, phytochemicals, antioxidant and anticancer activity. In this study macro and micronutrients of fresh and dehydrated betel leaves were analyzed. Carbohydrate content of fresh and dehydrated Piper betel leaf ranged from 6g to 12g, protein had 2.63g to 3.21g and fat ranged from 1g to 1.8g of fresh and dehydrated Piper betel leaf. Fiber composition in dehydrated and fresh Piper betel leaf ranged from 7.64g to 9.7g. Micronutrients include calcium, phosphorus, β carotene possess higher activity in dehydrated than fresh Piper betel leaf and iron showed identical results that is 3mg.Quantification of phytochemical analysis are done using aqueous and ethanolic extract of fresh and dehydrated Piper betel leaf. Total antioxidant activity of aqueous and ethanolic extract of fresh and dehydrated Piper betel leaf were analyzed.
