The Leaf Protein Concentrate (LPC) was isolated from the leaves of Girardinia heterophylla found in the Mussoorie
hills of Uttarakhand (India). Results of proximate analysis for nitrogen, protein, fat, ash and carbohydrate in appreciable
quantities revealed its possible use as non-conventional protein source. LPC is an important characteristic, which
establishes the usefulness of leaves of this plant as animal fodder for better milk production and also as nutritionally rich
source of protein for human consumption.
Keywords: Girardinia heterophylla, leaf protein concentrate, non-conventional.
