ABSTRACT:Benniseed (Sesamum indicum) samples obtained from three local government areas (LGAsi of Plateau State were analysed for their amino acid profile, chemical and mineral compositions. Samples obtained from low land area (Langtang LGA) were found to contain higher percentages of carbohydrate, lignin, crude protein, digestible proteins, minerals and oil content compared to values from the high land areas (Mangu and Bokkos LGAs). No much variation was observed within the same variety (black oval shape and black elongated shaped samples). Amino acid profile showed that the Langtang LGA samples contained higher amount of the amino acids than samples from Mangu and Bokkos LGAs.
