Abstract

The research was carried out to find out the proximate and mineral analysis for solar processed grapes. The new technique is been followed in the recent times compared to traditional processing. Two commercially available raisins’ varieties were collected from Palosi, a remote and rural area of Peshawar i.e., Black Raisin and Golden Raisin. The results revealed that among them the highest moisture content (21.85%) was recorded in sample taken in Golden Raisin, Ash Content (2.43%), Crude Protein (16.625%), Crude Fat (12%) in Golden Raisin, while Crude fiber (15.74%) and NFE (53.185%) in black raisin. The lowest values of these parameters showed that the moisture was lowest i.e., 17.39%, Ash Content (2.3%). Crude Protein 11.375, Crude Fat (7.47%) in Black Raisin and Crude Fiber 10.85 Raisin, NFE (48.245%) in Golden Raisin. In case of Mineral Analysis maximum Na (30%), K (20) and P (12%) in Golden Raisin while the lowest Na (28%), K (18%) and P (11%) in Black Raisin. Likewise, maximum Fe (0.395), Cu (0.302), Zn (1.090), Mn (0.254), Ca (5.654%) in Golden Raisin, however the minimum concentration was examined in Fe (0.356%), Cu (0.264), Zn (0.508), Mn (0.205), Ca in Black Raisin
