Abstract:
In this present investigation, study was carried out to determine physical and chemical composition of guava (Psidium Guajava L.) .The fresh and ripe guavas were selected for evaluation of physical, chemical and mineral composition. Results obtained showed that color of guava was yellowish white or green, length was 8.53cm, diameter was 6.76 cm and weight was observed to be 166.43 g. Further chemical and mineral composition was reported and results showed that moisture content found to be 84.61 %, carbohydrate 12.16%, protein 2.3%, Fat 0.7 % and ascorbic acid content found to be 241.86 mg/100g. The other parameters such as acidity and pH of guava juice were indicated 0.35% and 3.9 respectively. The mineral composition of guava showed calcium 17.63mg, iron 0.24 mg and zinc 0.21 mg/100g respectively.
