The aim of the present study was to evaluate the proximate composition, phytochemicals, and minerals contents of Moringa oleifera seeds , family Moringaceae. The proximate analysis reveal the dry matter 94.60%, ash content 2.13%, crude protein 58.32% , oil 11.3% , crude fiber 4.75% and total carbohydrate content is 23.5% . The phytochemicals analysis of Moringa seeds in this study are phytic acid ( 351.12 mg/100g), tannin (0.13 mg/100g) and total polyphenols ( 629.70 mg/100g) . The minerals content are Ca ( 42.13 mg/100g ), phosphorus ( 1311.20 mg/100g) and iron ( 55.98 mg/100g).
