Its common name is Benniseed and Black Benniseed. The purpose of this study was to determine moisture, ash, fat, protein, carbohydrates and food energy content from the Sesamum radiatum seeds using various analytical and biochemical method. This study also was conducted to determine mineral content (Ca, Mg, K, Na, Cu) from Sesamum radiatum seeds using atomic absorption spectrophotometer (AAS). Thus, studies has revealed Sesamum radiatum content 4.24% moisture, 6.27% ash, 43.48% fat, 20.60% protein, 25.41% carbohydrates and 577.36 Kcal/g food energy content. The seeds also were found to be good sources of minerals where Potassium (111.8 mg/L) Calcium (175.1 mg/L), Magnesium (57.35 mg/L), Sodium (3.043 mg/L) and Copper (0.346 mg/L).
