Medicinal Uses and Pharmacological Activity Wood Apple (Limonia Acidissima) : A Review
Navneet Kumar Verma, Asheesh Kumar Singh, Ram Kishor

A fruit of the Rutaceae family with less commercial use is the wood apple. Food preparations all throughout the world use the fruit pulp, which is edible. It has also been used for centuries as a traditional medicine. Although they are not frequently used, seeds from fruits like Citrullus (C.) lanatus (watermelon) and Limonia (L.) acidissima (wood apple) could be useful in many food formulations. It was determined that defatted seed flours had protein contents of 71.38 and 49.51 percent, respectively, and that they also included significant amounts of minerals like Na, Mn, Mg, K, Cu, Fe, and Zn. the reduced L. The goal of this review was to provide an overview of the fruit's pharmacological potential. This fruit is useful against a number of dangerous diseases, including bacterial infections, cancer, diabetes, and hyperlipidemia. pH, total soluble solids, titratable acidity, ascorbic acid, and biochemical characteristics (total phenolic content and antioxidant activity) of the chutney were examined during the storage period. One of the native milk products is kalakand, which is made by heating whole or standardised milk and then concentrating it with the addition of sugar and the right coagulant. The goal of the current experiment was to create Kalakand by incorporating wood apple pulp into it at various concentrations while using buffalo milk. Additionally, it has the ability to treat pain, ulcers, and diarrhoea. Fruit's pharmacological action is significant in both ripe and unripe forms. The principal antioxidant responsible for the medicinal potentials is flavonoids and phenolic compounds.
