Development of effective extraction method for Lepidium sativum seed mucilage with higher yield

Vaishali Kilor Neeta Nandlal Bramhe


In the present study, we are reporting a novel extraction method for production of Lepidium sativum seed mucilage maximizing the yield of the product with good organoleptic property and swelling index. Extraction method developed was aimed at simplifying the process in which less amount of solvent will be used. The developed method was compared with the other methods reported in the literature. Mucilage extracted by precipitation of soaked and blended seed in acetone gave maximum yield of 12%w/w as compared to the other extraction methods where yield was 3-5% respectively. Mucilage was found to have excellent swelling index (351.5) and also exhibited good Organoleptic characteristic and flow properties.
