Analysis of cinnamon (proximate analysis)

A study conducted to know the values of cinnamon in the chemistry department of UET, Lahore. The procedures were followed to analyze the proximate composition and minerals were according to the AOAC (2006). The caloric amount was determined from moisture, crude protein, crude fat, crude fiber, and also total ash content. The iron (Fe), zinc (Zn), calcium (Ca), chromium (Cr), manganese (Mn) and magnesium (Mg) were determined by Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer, and phosphorus (P) by Spectrophotometer. The results shown that cinnamon contained moisture (5.82%), crude protein (3.56%), crude fat (4.35%), crude fiber (31.24%), and ash contents (2.67%). While the minerals determination that cinnamon contained iron (7.9 mg/g), Zinc (2.6 mg/g), Calcium (101.8 mg/g), Manganese (15.1 mg/g) and Magnesium (98.5 mg/g).
