Abstract

The moisture, ash, lipid, protein, total dietary fibre and total carbohydrates content of three varieties of carrot which is 'Australia Sumich', Kundasang variety and China variety were studied. Moisture content, ash, lipid, protein, total dietary fibre and total carbohydrates content were determined by the method based on AOAC Method 952.10, AOAC: Method 900.02 A, AOAC method 934.01, AOAC Method 991.43, AOAC Method 960.52, James (1995) and Nielsen (1998). Based on the result, 'Australia Sumich' carrot contained moisture content of 90.97g ± 0.04, ash content of 0.09g ± 0.01, lipid content of 0.34g ± 0.07, protein content of 1.08 g ± 0.06, total dietary fibre of 2.06 g ± 0.06 and total carbohydrates of 7.52 g ± 0.09 in 100 g of carrot Meanwhile, China carrot contained moisture content of 90.28g ± 0.06, ash of 0.08g ± 0.01, lipid content of 0.28g ± 0.07, protein content of 0.93 ± 0.06, total dietary fibre of 2.74g ± 0.06 and total carbohydrates of 8.43g ± 0.10 in 100 g of carrot in 100 g of carrot. Kundasang carrot has moisture content of 89.82g ± 0.1 0, ash of 0.07 g ± 0.01, lipid content of 0.21g ± 0.08, protein content of 1.23g ± 0.07, total dietary fibre of 3.52 g ± 0.04 and total carbohydrates of 8.67g ± 0.10 in 100 g of carrot. As for conclusion, 'Australia Sumich' carrot contained the highest moisture, ash and lipid content meanwhile Kundasang variety carrot contained the highest protein content, total dietary fibre and total carbohydrate in 100 g of carrot.
