Abstract

The proximate analyses of the locally available commercial varieties of white and black sesame indicated that they contained 26.94%-27.65% protein, 47.79%-48.21% fat, 8.16%-8.95% carbohydrates and 5.56%-5.59% ash. Minerals like calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium were present in significant quantities. Protein isolates were prepared from the defatted sesame meal using alkaline extraction method. The data indicated that about 28%-30% proteins were recovered and contained more than 90% proteins with all functional properties.
