Girardinia heterophylla (Decne), distributed extensively in Middle Himalayas, is a potential source of Leaf
Protein Concentrate (LPC). Present study envisages the phytochemical investigations to assess the availability and
commercial viability of LPC of Girardinia heterophylla. Samples of plant leaves were collected from Mussoorie Hills of
Uttarakhand (India) and contents of LPC were isolated. Proximate analysis of LPC for nitrogen, protein, fat, ash and
carbohydrate content revealed their concentration in appreciable quantities making it a potential source of nonconventional
protein. LPC has important biochemical characteristics, which establish the usefulness and potential of
leaves of this plant to be used as animal fodder for better milk production and also as nutritionally rich source for protein
for human consumption.
