Abstract

Dialium angolense were investigated to assess to the nutritive potentiality of his leaves and fruits and their implication in curative management of malaria using Standard analytical methods. The analysis showed that the carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, macro, micronutrients, and energy in fruits were greater than leaves. These two organs have been revealed as potential sources of Na (≥71.1 ± 0.1 mg / 100 g), K (≥2.6 ± 0,3 mg / 100 g), Mg(≥45.2 ± 0.1 mg / 100 g), Fe (≥30.1 ± 0.1 mg / 100 g), Cu (≥2.0 ± 0.3 mg / 100 g), Zn (≥8.4 ± 0.2 mg / 100 g), Mn (≥0.1 ± 0.04 mg / 100 g), vitamins B1 (≥2.80 ± 0.13 mg / 100 g), B9 (≥0.20 ± 0.02 mg / 100 g) and E (≥6.40 ± 0.10 mg / 100 g) as well as flavonoids (≥ 49.51 ± 0.41 mg / 100 g).This nutritional potential hereby highlighted justifies why D. angolense can be used as food source and a supplementary nutriment in the management of malaria. This study suggests more extensive integration of D. angolense to reduce deficiency nutrients for the population at risk, especially when they face malaria disease.
