Evaluation of Nutritional status of Penaeid Prawns through Proximate Composition Studies


Author(s): SK Shahina Banu, K Hareesh, M Srinivasulu Reddy

Abstract: The proximate composition and biochemical constituents were analysed in the muscle tissue of penaeid prawns selected in the present investigation namely Peaneus monodon, P. indicus, P. semisulcatus, Litopenaeus vannamei, Metapenaeus monoceros and M. dobsoni. The Crude protein, Carbohydrate, Lipid, Moisture, Ash, Free amino acids, Free Fatty acids including Saturated, Mono-Unsaturated and Poly-Unsaturated Fatty acids quantified in the muscle tissue of Penaeid Prawns clearly demonstrates the nutritional status of edible Portion of prawns i.e., muscle tissue for human consumption due to its possessing of good quality of Proteins, higher amounts of free amino acids, lower amounts of fats. From the results obtained in the present investigation, it inferred that all the Penaeid prawns selected are supposed to have the ideal nutritional ingredients hence are considered as good source of food for human consumption.
