This study aimed at
characterizing the fruits of Canarium schweinfurthii Linn. of it's the physical
and chemical properties. Fruits were collected from three agroecological zones
of Nigeria. The nutritional and oil characteristics were investigated using
Complete randomized design (CRD) with three replications in each treatment. The
chemical analyses carried out were on the moisture protein, lipid, ash
contents, phytochemicals, minerals, vitamins and oil characteristics of the
fruits. The result of the proximate analysis revealed that samples from Ebonyi
State had the significant values (P<0.05) in the protein (11.83±0.11%), crude fibre (16.40±0.00%), ash (1.44±0.57%) and fat content (16.70±0.00%) while those samples from Abia State had significant values in moisture (54.45±0.35%) and carbohydrate contents (4.03±0.60%). The result of phytochemicals analysis reveals the tannin and saponin contents of samples from Ebonyi State had the significant values of (0.75 ±0.00mg/i 00g) and (2.15 ±0.71mg/i 00g) respectively. The phenol and flavonoid contents of samples from Abia State had a very significant value (p>
