Abstract:
Himalayan filbert (Corylus ferox) is one of the indigenous underutilized fruit crops of the State of Sikkim. The study has been conducted at Department of Horticulture, Sikkim University, Gangtok during 2014-15 with an objective to determine the various dietary nutrients of Himalayan filbert (Corylus ferox). The Himalayan filbert fruits were collected from all the four districts of Sikkim i.e. East, West, North and South. There were altogether eight samples i.e. two samples from each of the four districts of Sikkim. Three replications were taken for each sample and the statistical design used was Completely Randomized Design (CRD). The study includes determination of crude fat, ash, crude fibre, crude protein, Vitamin C content of Himalayan filbert (Corylus ferox). The multi-elements determined in the study are being reported in a separate publication. One of the significance of the study is comparison of Himalayan filbert (Corylus ferox) with European Hazelnut (Corylus avellana) in terms of nutritional value which may lead to enhancement of production and marketing of Himalayan filbert. As per the experiments conducted, Himalayan filbert (Corylus ferox) has shown similar results in terms of nutritional value as European filbert (Corylus avellana).
