Mustard greens are an excellent source of many vitamins, dietary fiber, phosphorus, protein and iron as well as a good source of a potassium and magnesium. All genotypes showed variability in nutraceutical property. Highest content of protein was found in FS-13-17 (32.68%). Genotype FS-13-15 has high content of P, S and K Genotypes PRHC-12-14, FS-13-12 and FS-13-1 recorded highest value for S content whereas, EEC-10 had maximum K content. Iron and Manganese content was found maximum in genotype FS-13-10 (37.52mg/100g) and PRHC-12-6 (7.97 mg/100g) respectively. Highest content of Zinc was found in MGVAR-2 (5.83 mg/100g). These genotypes were promising and can be utilized for further improvement programme in leafy mustard. The genotypes which are rich in nutraceutical properties can be used for plant bio-fortification and such bio-fortified plant/varieties are safe for human consumption.
