R. Gowri Manohari, M.D. Saravanamoorthy*, T. Poongodi Vijayakumar and B. Vijayan

ABSTRACT

The utility of bamboo rice collected from the seeds of flowered bamboos has become a major source of income for tribal peoples with resemblance to paddy rice and wheat-like taste, bamboo rice is comparatively much richer in protein. Not only tribes but local people here also consider it as a good substitute for rice. The objective of the present study was to investigate the presence of various phytochemicals in Bambusa arundinacea (Retz. ) Wild. from the aqueous extract. The seed extract revealed the presence of phytochemicals such as Tannins, Phlobatannins, Flavonoids, Cardiac glycosides, Reducing sugar, Phenols. Remarkably Saponins, Alkaloids, Terpenoids and Anthraquinines were not present. The generated data from the extract of seeds provided the basis for its wide uses in the traditional & folk medicines.

Keywords: Ayurvedic, Bambusoideae, Bamboo seed, Primary and Secondary metabolites, Phytochemicals.
