Abstract

An experiment was carried out to estimate the amount of vitamin B2, B3 and C in ten locally available herbs and local plants at Kelantan. Spectrophotometry analysis was used to carry out the experiment. The data was tabulated using SPSS software with One Way ANOVA analysis. The importance of these vitamins for the rural people were also discussed. From the research, it has been found that 1pomoea aquatica contains the highest amount of riboflavin (2.144mg/100mg). Niacin content was found to be high in Acalypha indica (1.805mg/100mg) and Diplazium esculentum contains the highest amount of ascorbic acid (0.858mg/100mg).The calculation of total vitamin contents for each type of weed and local plants was carried out and it was found out that Sesbania grandiflora contains the highest amount of vitamins compared to other plant samples. It is opined that I.aquatica, A.indica and D. esculentum have a good potential to be used as an alternative vitamin source.
