Abstract: The underutilized fruits Baccaurea ramiflora (Kusum) from the eastern region of India were investigated for nutritional composition, phytochemicals and bioactive compounds. A detailed nutritional characterization of the fruit demonstrated that it has the potential to act as good source of minerals along with other nutrients, dietary fibres, significant phenolic compounds and possesses antioxidant properties. The maximum phenolic, flavonoid and flavonol content were obtained as 32.78µg GAE, 71.67µg RE and 85.58µg RE respectively, per mg of methanol extract. Antioxidant activities (as IC50 value) of different extracts (as DPPH scavenging) ranged between 3.89 to 10.14 mg/mL and ABTS with a trolox equivalent antioxidant concentration (TEAC) recorded between 2.55 to 6.23 mg/mL, respectively. GC-MS screening of MeOH extract showed the presence of secondary metabolites and fatty acids. Analysis of volatile flavor showed lauryl alcohol as a major compound followed by the other monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes which are important in the cosmetics, flavour and fragrance industries.
