Laserpitium carduchorum Hedge & Lamond, mineral, trace element, vitamin
In our study, some vitamin (A, E), mineral (K, Mg) and trace element (Fe, Cu, Zn, Mn) levels of the Laserpitium carduchorum Hedge & Lamond plant which is endemically grown in Van Lake basin were examined. When the results of the study were evaluated; Vitamin A level of Laserpitium carduchorum Hedge & Lamond plant was found to be 0.61 ± 0.063 µg g-1 and vitamin E level was 0.77 ± 0.067 µg g-1. When the mineral and trace element contents of Hedge & Lamond were evaluated, K (potassium) was 868,83 ± 72,92 µg g-1, Mg (Magnesium) 180,77 ± 18,47 µg g-1, Fe (Iron) 11,74 ± 2,37, Cu (Copper) 9,59 ± 1,1 Zn (Zinc) 23,69 ± 2,46 Mn (Manganese) 34,45 ± 5,35 µg g-1. It was detected that the plant was rich in minerals and trace elements such as K (potassium), Mg (Magnesium), Mn (manganese), Zn (zinc).
