    Abstract: Ginger (Zingiber officinale) and garlic (Allium sativum) were characterized with respect to their proximate composition, energy value, mineral content, anti-nutrient constituents, functional and antioxidants properties. Their seed oils were also extracted and characterised with respect to their physicochemical properties and fatty acid profiles. Th... Show More
