Fenugreek is reported to have various medicinal properties and potent source of natural antioxidants, the medicinal properties attributed to this plant is due to the presence of different bioactive components which are identified by using GC-MS. In this study, the bioactive constituent present in methanolic seed extract of some selected genotypes of Trigonella foenum-graecum identified. GC-MS analysis of methanolic extract of fenugreek seed revealed the presence of various bioactive compounds such as vitamin E, retinol, lanseol sis, pregnane, reported for exhibiting various biological activities. Seeds of fenugreek genotypes can be used in pharmaceutical as natural source of medicine.
