ABSTRACT:
Trigonella foenum graecum is a lemucilageinous plant and is grown mostly in Asia, the Mediterranean, and North African regions. The fenugreek seed contains 23-26% protein, 6-7% fat and 58% carbohydrates of which 25% is dietary fibre. It is commonly used as spice and seasoning in food preparations. It has been traditionally used for diseases like diabetes mellitus, fever, boils and carbuncles. The objective of this research is to extract and evaluate the mucilage of fenugreek seed mucilage. Seeds were collected and slurry was prepared using distilled water which was precipitated using ethanol. The precipitates were separated and dried. The dried mucilage was subjected to various phytochemical and physicochemical tests. The extracted mucilage shows the presence of carbohydrates, reducing sugar and mucilage whereas glycoside, alkaloids, steroids, flavonoids and tannins was absent. The moisture sorption test reveals that the mucilage can sorbed moisture and has ability of swelling in water as shown by result of swelling index test. Other physicochemical studies indicate that the mucilage has properties to be used as excipient. FTIR spectrum shows the presence of bonds it possesses. It can be concluded that the mucilage can be used to prepare dosage form. However, as it can absorb moisture, the prepared dosage form should be packed suitably to avoid the contact of moisture.
