Abstract: In this study, chemical and mineral composition of the calyces of green, red and dark red roselle were evaluated. There was no significant difference in crude protein of green (17.9%) and red (17.4%) coloured roselle calyces. Crude fibre (11.2%), ascorbic acid (86.5mg/~OOg) and sodium (9.5mg/lOOg) contents of green coloured calyx were significantly higher than other calyx samples. However, dark red calyx was significantly higher in ash (6.8%) and potassium (2320mg/100g) contents than the other two calyces. Also, there was no significant differences in calcium, magnesium and zinc contents of red and dark red coloured roselle calyces at P Roselle calyces appeared to be cheap source of vegetable protein, fat and minerals therefore its consumption should be encouraged.
