was carried out using AOAC and AAS methods. The proximate result revealed, 61.67% moisture, 17.63?0.02% protein,
13.21?0.1% ash, 1.14?0.02% crude protein, 6.63?0.02% carbohydrate and 14.81?0.03% fiber contents. The mineral content of
the leaves was found to be 52.596 μgg
for calcium, 0.019 μgg
magnesium, 10.12 μgg
iron and 0.63 μgg
lead. The results are
within the literature ranges. The high amount of protein, fiber, carbohydrate and moisture in the leaves of the plant indicated
that it could be recommended for consumers as a rich source of vegetable diet.
