Abstract

In this study, the protein and mineral contents of fruit, stalks and leaves of naturally grown European Cranberrybush were investigated. The macro element contents of European Cranberrybush fruits, stalks and leaves were determined as 0.52-0.51-1.94% Nitrogen (N), 0.09-0.04-0.42% Phosphorus (P), 0.93-0.10-1.17%, Potassium (K), 0.21-0.48-2.44% Calcium (Ca), 0.05-0.04-0.37% Magnesium (Mg) and 0.04-0.06-0.09% Sodium (Na), respectively. The micro elements were found 12.81-215.83-436.35 mg kg(-1) Iron (Fe), 5.69-12.38-8.05 mg kg(-1) Copper (Cu), 6.45-19.97-25.81 mg kg(-1) Zinc (Zn) and 1.56-26.62-40.47 mg kg(-1) Mangan (Mn), respectively. Protein results of fruits, stalks and leaves were determined as 0.52%, 0.51% and 12.10%, respectively. The results showed that the protein and mineral contents of the leaves (except copper) were higher than the fruit and the leaves, and the alternative evaluation possibilities of leaves should be investigated.
