|Title:||Food and Fruit|
|Abstract:||<b>Food-</b>The yellow to orange berries of Seabuckthorn are now-a-days used for making commercial beverage and for many medicinal purposes. The leaves of this abundantly growing shrub are used as animal feed and can be used as a source of unconventional protein for human food. Li & Wardle at Pacific Agri Food Research Centre, British Columbia studied the effect of harvest period on the protein content in Hippophae rhamnoides Linn.subsp. sinensis which are reported to contain an average of 17.1 and 16.2gprotein 100g-1 dried leaf.<br><br> <b>Fruit-</b>Muscadine grapes, Vitis rotundifolia Michx. are grown primarily in the southern United States and grown on a small extent in India. The fruits are generally free of injury, decay and sunscald and are fully bronze or black in colour. Harvesting and marketing for fresh muscadines, manual harvesting, sorting and packaging are required. Muscadine grapes are normally marketed as individual berries because the fruit is easily separated from the stem during picking. Broken stem ends are usually evident, however, rendering the berries more susceptible to spoilage.|
