Author(s):

Kshitij Navinprakash Shah

Abstract:

Melghat is a dense forest region of central India with very rich flora and fauna. The wild honey found here is assumed to have tremendous therapeutic properties as it is used as a medicine by the tribal for years. Melghat honey is analyzed for the detection of phytochemicals. The standardized qualitative screening tests are applied for the detection of tannins, phenolic compounds, alkaloids, glycosides, saponins, steroids, carbohydrates, proteins, tri-terpenoids, and flavonoids. It is concluded from the results that tri-terpenoids are not found in any of these samples while most of the samples gave negative inference for alkaloids. All the other mentioned phytochemicals are detected in the Melghat honey samples.
