The zingiberacea the largest family in zingeberales comprises generally 300 genera and 1000 species. The present study aim at comparing the TPC and TFC in conventional and Non-conventional species of curcuma. The TPC of all three species ranged from 92.30Â±0.05 to 260 Â± 0.025 mg gallic acid equivalent/g and total flavonoid content ranged from 22.52Â±0.015 to 79.36Â±0.01 mg quercetin equivalent/g. The results of the study highlighted that conventional curcuma species had higher phenolic and flavonoid content.
