AA Mahmoud, Abubakar Abbas, HM Adamu, Yakubu Hamza, Yushau Salim

The increase in demand and different applications of oils foster the search for vegetable and seed oils that are of high quality to meet up with the increasing rate of its demand worldwide. In this research, the extraction, nutritional and anti-nutritional. The seed oil of the plant was extracted using solvent (N-Hexane). Standard method was adopted to extract the seed oil of the plant. The parameters of seed oil determined includes anti nutritional values such as oxalate 1.66 mg/100g, phytic acid 0.55 mg/100g and hydrogen cyanide 1.46 mg/100g. And proximate analysis such as ash content 9%, crude protein 25%, lipid 37%, crude fibre 5%, moisture 3%, carbohydrate 27% and food energy 541 g/cal. Minerals such as sodium Na+ 20.31 mg/100g, Potassium K+ 120 mg/100g, Magnesium Mg2+17.16 mg/100g and Calcium Ca2+90.61 mg/100g.The consumption of this oil is may be encouraged due to its low level of anti-nutritional values.
