Abstract

Nutritional properties of vegetable salad incorporated with red seaweed (Hypnea musciformis) was
evaluated. Two lots of vegetable salad were prepared viz., control salad without adding seaweed and seaweed
salad with inclusion of 20% seaweed along with cucumber, tomato, carrot, cloves, garlic, lemon and salt.
Micronutrient composition indicated that addition of seaweed increased the Ca, Na, Fe and Zn content of
vegetable salad. Calcium and iron content was substantially higher in seaweed mixed salad. The results
indicate that incorporation of seaweed in vegetable salad improves the nutritional content and hence can be
used to enrich nutritional quality of food salad.
