Lipids, proteins, minerals and essential oils were quantitatively determined from the plant Tussilago farfara L. (Asteraceae) growing wild in Sharr (south part of Kosova). Proteins were determined according to the Kjeldahl method, whereas lipids were determined according to the Soxhlet method. Determination of the lipid fraction was performed using thin layer chromatography. Using TLC we have determined five fractions of lipids with different polarity. Essential oils were isolated using steam distillation. The mineral content of Tussilago farfara L. (Asteraceae) was investigated using Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (AAS). Seven elements, iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, copper, sodium, and zinc, were determined in this plant. From our results we can conclude that Tussilago farafara L. (Asteraceae), growing wild in the south region of Kosova contain: lipids 1.745 %, proteins 2.477 %, essential oils 0.111 %, iron 0.912 %, calcium 0.463 %, potassium 0.295 %, magnesium 0.228 %, copper 0.081 %, sodium 0.057 %, zinc 0.0353 %. It is evident that iron is present in larger amounts in this plant compared to other elements.
