Mineral composition in Vitis vinifera (vitaceae), Apium graveolen (Apiaceae), Trigonella foenum (Fabaceae), Coriandrum sativam (Apiaceae), Brassica campestris (Cruciferae) plants of Balochistan.
Plants have always been an essential link in the interaction between mankind and environment. Four edible plants were collected from different areas of Balochistan in summer 2006. The purpose of this study was to investigate the mineral content in these plants. Their taxonomic identification was done according to the flora of Pakistan and mineral analysis was carried out by atomic absorption spectrophotometer. Plant species Vitis vinifera. L, Apium graveolens.L, Trigonella foenum.L, Coriandrum sativum. L, Brassica campestris.L. Highest amount of Iron (Fe) was found in brassica(0.13%), lowest amount of iron (Fe) was found in coriander(0.05%), Manganese(Mn) was found (0.01%) in grapes, brassica, coriander.
