This is concerned with the identification of the phytochemical that is contained in the leaves of the tree Broussonetia luzonicus the leaves of which are commonly eaten in the northern regions of the Philippines. Other studies of other Broussonetia spp. have been reported to have antibacterial, antioxidant, antitumor, and pancreatic lipase inhibitory activity. This study sought to identify the phytochemical that the Broussonetia luzonicus leaves contain. The study began with the collection and identification of B. luzonicus leaves. The crude methanolic extract was collected by percolation and concentrated using a rotary evaporator. It was then tested using qualitative phytochemical screening methods and it yielded carbohydrates, reducing sugars, flavonoids, phenolic compounds, alkaloids, and sterols.
