Abstract:

Talinum triangulare and Celosia argentea are two common underutilized leafy vegetables in Nigeria. This work was carried out to determine the mineral, proximate, and antinutritional contents of the plants, which were estimated by standard methods. Antibacterial activity of the leaf aqueous and ethanolic extracts was also evaluated against some bacteria. Results obtained from the study have shown that the two plants had constituents that show them as a good source of nutritional and medicinal benefits.
