Anatomical and Pharmacognostic Features of Mangifera indica Young Fruits (Avaakai) Seed Kernel

A. Bharathi, S. Rajan

Mangifera indica tender fruits seed kernel (MITSK) showed good therapeutic value. Pharmacognostical and anatomical studies of these plant materials showed the quality of raw material used for the medicinal purpose. Anatomy of this study material showed soft, thin papery testa and flat, planoconvex cotyledons. These are small, less prominent vascular bundles are seen in the out sarcotesta regions. Parenchyma cells with dense accumulation of starch grains and secretary cavity seen in the powder. Isolated starch grains are either circular ovoid or elliptical in shape. Other unique shape of starch grains are also seen in the powder. Good powder of MITSK was greyish yellow in colour, bitter taste and aromatic odour. It also showed effective physiochemical properties. Effective photochemical like flavonoids, tannins, phenolic compound are found in the extracts of seed kernel. This study provides scientific data to determine standards for the plant materials.
