Abstract: Phyllanthus Emblica alsoknown as Indian gooseberry is ranked as important fruit crop due its medicinal and nutraceutical properties. Different biochemicals characters of eight different varieties viz., Krishna, Kanchan, Banarasi, Chakaiya, Hathijhool, NA-7, NA-10 and wild genotype of Phyllanthus Emblica were evaluated during present investigation. The highest Vitamin C content was estimated in the fruits of variety NA-10 (627.11 mg/100 g) and wild fruits were recorded with the lowest (372.57 ± 20.53 mg/100g) vitamin C content. Highest TSS (15.330 B) was observed in fruit extract of variety Krishna. However, fruits of wild were recorded with lowest Total Soluble solid (5.4 ± 0.2310 B). The percent acidity was found to be 5.87% in Kanchan variety with that of Hathijhool and NA-10 (0.66%). Total phenolic content was found to be ranged from 3.653 ± 0.053 mg/g GAE to 8.123 ± 0.053 mg/g of GAE. Variety Banarasi was found to have highest total phenolic content (8.12 mg/g GAE). The total flavanoid content was found to be 6.38 mg/g QE for Kanchan variety. The fruits of wild were observed to have highest tannin content (4.46 mg/g TAE). Aqueous fruit extract for ferrous reducing antioxidant power was reported to be range from 1.978 ± 0.432 to 10.547 ± 1.674 µmol of FeSo4 per mg. The varieties analysed during the present study could be explored for multifaceted ethnomedicinal uses.
