Paper Title:
Chemical Composition of Broussonetia Papyrifera Flowers
  Abstract

Corolla and receptacle of Broussonetia papyrifera from South China were analyzed separately for chemical composition. In this plant’s corolla,the crude protein, crude fat and carbohydrates were 7.08%, 3.72% and 64.73% respectively in dry weight. In the receptacle, the crude protein, crude fat and carbohydrates were 4.75%, 8.08% and 67.03% respectively. Unsaturated fatty acids concentration was 68% of total fatty acids. The percentage of the essential amino acids (EAAs) in total amino acids was 34.52%in corolla and 27.96% in receptacle. Furthermore,many mineral celements composition and vitamins are rich in B. papyrifera flowers. In corolla, calcium is 10015 mg/kg, magnesium is 1989.6 mg/kg, zinc is 62.6 mg/kg, iron is 306.6 mg/kg, VE is 1.35mg/100g.These results suggest that, the fiowers could be used in dietary supplements preparations or as food additives.
