Abstract
On January 2, 2024, Ziba Bakhtiar and his research team published an article titled "Variability in proximate composition, phytochemical traits, and antioxidant properties of Iranian agro-ecotypic populations of fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.)" in the journal Scientific Reports. The article investigates the variability in proximate composition, phytochemical characteristics, and antioxidant properties of different agro-ecotypic populations of fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) in Iran. By analyzing leaf and seed samples from 31 Iranian fenugreek agro-ecotypic populations, the study found that the seeds contain higher levels of ash, fat, crude fiber, protein, and carbohydrates, and their energy value is significantly higher than that of the leaves. The antioxidant activity and capacity of the leaves were also studied in detail, revealing a positive correlation with total phenolic and total flavonoid contents. The research demonstrates significant differences and correlations among these traits, which are important for further studies on food production systems.
