Abstract

Chemical components of domestic Angelica gigas Nakai and Angelica acutiloba Kitagawa were analyzed. Proximate analysis of each species showed crude protein 18.1% and 13.4%, crude lipid 8.9% and 4.3%, crude fiber 8.6% and 9.4%, crude ash 7.4% and 8.2%, and carbohydrate 57.0% and 64.7%, respectively. Contents of potassium which was found to be the most abundant mineral in both species were 2,740.0 mg% and 2,582.8 mg%, and those of sucrose were 0.4 % and 0.3% respectively while neither fructose nor glucose were detected in each species. Major fatty acids in Angelica gigas Nakai and Angelica acutiloba Kitagawa were linoleic acid (60.8% and 59.5%), palmitic acid (17.4% and 15.3%), oleic acid (8.8% and 7.7%) (respectively) but there was no significant difference between two species. Arginine was revealed as the most abundant amino acid in both species with 2,599.8 mg% in Angelica gigas Nakai and 1,543.4 mg% in Angelica acutiloba Kitagawa. Angelica gigas Nakai and Angelica acutiloba Kitagawa also were shown to contained 10.5 mg% and 12.2 mg% $vitamin\;B_1$, 0.1 mg% and 0.04 mg%, $vitamin\;B_2$, 4.3% and 0.8% decursin, and 988.0 mg% and 900.0 mg% tannin, respectively.
