Abstract

Totally 11 minerals were reported in the present study. There are about 7 (Sodium>Potassium>Magnesium>Calcium>Manganese>Iron>Zinc) minerals were reported in all sexes. Sodium was maximum and zinc was minimum in all sexes. Copper, mercury and cadmium were available in trace amount in all sexes. However, arsenic was in trace amount in berried females and totally absent in males and females. Among different sexes, berried females contain maximum amount of minerals (157.65 mg) followed by males (117.30 mg) and females (93.65 mg). From the study, berried females contains maximum amount of minerals than males and females. So it is recommended to consume berried females to get maximum minerals.
