The present exploration was projected to assess the nutritive potential, minerals content, vitamin quantity, antinutritional properties and toxicity investigations in five wild edible plants for example Agapetes variegata, Ficus virens, Begonia roxburghii, Clerodendrum serratum and Rhododendron arboreum, devoured by the diverse ancestral individuals of Meghalaya State in India as their sustenance. The proximate parameters,minerals,toxic heavy metals and antinutritional components were evaluated using standard food analysis techniques. The water soluble vitamins were carried out by HPLC. The in vitro haemolytic assays of plants were carried out on rat erythrocytes. Assessments of cytotoxicity of edible plants were evaluated by MTT assay. The genotoxicity were tested by the single-cell gel electrophoresis comet assay. The outcomes of examination demonstrated that these plants are rich wellsprings of protein, minerals and vitamins. The estimations of antinutrients and substantial metals in the plants are beneath the lethal levels and furthermore safe to consume.
