The amino acids and carbohydrates present in the fruits of Achras sapota have been extracted and identified. The 95, 85 and 70% ethanol extracts afforded the mono- and dissacharides alongwith amino acids, while stepwise extraction with water at room temperature, hot water. ammo­nium oxalate and sodium hydroxide solutions gave the polysacdlarides. The mono- and disaccharides were identified as glucose, fructose, sucrose,lactose and galacturonic acid. The m~or constituents of the polysaccharides were galactose, galacturonic acid and arabinose with rhamnose and xylose as minor constituents.The amino acids found to be present were arginine, aspartic acid, alanine, isoleucine, leucine, glutamic acid, glycine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, proline, hydroxyproline, threonine. taurine. tyro­sine. serine, valine, phosphoethanolamine alongwith urea.
