There are large varieties of oil seeds and legumes in India, which are part of traditional food system but whose nutritional and economic values have not been completely determine and are far less exploited for both human and livestock utilization. The objective of this study was to evaluate Sunflower (Helianths annuus) LSF-11, Sunflower (Helianths annuus) LSF-8, Safflower (Carthamus tinctorius) PBNS-12, Safflower (Carthamus tinctorius) PBNS-40, and Ground nut (Arachis hypogaea) JL-24 seeds with the aim of qualifying and quantifying chemical information that might serve as a guide to exploit its potentials and benefits for human and animal nutrition. The amino acid profile of these oil seed were carried out using standard methods. Amino acid analysis using technical sequential multisampling amino acid analyzer detected all essential and non essential amino acids. The seeds are rich in four amino acids (EAA and NEAA) (g/16g N) Glutamic acid (5.083), Aspartic acid (3.459), Proline (6.412) and Methionine (3.001)%, respectively. The other amino acids compared well with the FAO reference protein, Serine appeared to be the most limiting amino acid percent. Based on results of this study, the lesser known and under-utilized oil seeds, they can be a potential source and energy supplements in livestock feed.
