In the present day scenario fruit peels are slowly gaining importance as they represent a novel source of therapeutic bioactive components which imparts potential health benefits. The present study was carried out to determine the presence of phytochemicals present in mango peel powder using various extracts such as aqueous, acetone, chloroform, ethanol and petroleum ether. The result indicated that aqueous, acetone and ethanol extract were found to possess maximum number of phytochemicals followed by the ethanol and petroleum ether extracts. The total phenol content (2.67mg/Gallic acid g) and tannin content (2.77 mg/TAE) was found to be high in acetone extract while the total flavonoid content was high in ethanol extract (1.57mg Qe/g).
