Dr. Vishnu Kiran Manam* and Dr. Murugesan Subbaiah

ABSTRACT

In the current study the biochemical evaluation of the seaweeds were conducted which were collected along the south east coast of India. The marine brown macro alga Colpomenia sinuosa (Mertens ex Roth) Derbes and Solier as well as the marine red alga Halymenia poryphyroides Boergesen were used in this study. The relationship between the nutritive components and the variation of the biochemical composition like organic and inorganic constituents were mainly analyzed in the current study. The present analysis revealed that both the seaweeds were rich in protein content whereas more carbohydrate content was observed in marine red alga Halymenia porphyroides compared to the marine brown alga Colpomenia sinuosa. Similarly the analysis of inorganic biochemical constituents revealed that calcium, magnesium, iron and phosphorus were present in higher amount in marine brown alga Colpomenia sinuosa whereas sodium and potassium contents were observed in higher amount in marine red alga Halymenia porphyroides. The presence of high organic and inorganic biochemical constituents in these seaweeds may be of economic importance and ass potential health food for human diets.

Keywords: Biochemical composition, Colpomenia Sinuosa, Halymenia porphyroides.
