Abstract:
Background: Amaranthus viridis and Amaranthus tricolor were herbs with nutraceutical potentials. These herbs were consumed as leafy vegetable in various parts of India as cheap and nutritive source of food materials among low economic society.
Objectives: Present research focused on TLC fingerprinting of selected herbs Amaranthus viridis and Amaranthus tricolor.
Materials and methods: Petroleum ether, chloroform and ethanolic extracts of, both the selected herbs were used for TLC finger printing. Standard rutin was used for detection of flavonoids. Silica gel-G used as stationary phase and combinations of solvent system were used as mobile phase, in linear ascending direction in chromatographic chamber and detection was carried out under UV chamber.
Result: The result revealed presence of appreciable number of phyto chemical compounds corresponding to RF values along with flavonoids compound rutin.
Conclusion: The result of the study suggested positive evidence about plant extracts of A. viridis and A. tricolor as nutraceutical and pharmaceuticals
