Employees Commitment and Organizational Productivity.  In International Journal of Business and Economic Research.  ISSN 2306-9074 www.isearchscholars.com,  70-75.

 

New York, USA.

Commitment of Employees to their organization is very necessary if such organization intends to achieve their goals.  Organizations need committed employees to be productive.  Committed employees tend to go the extra mile to ensure that the goals of the organization are achieved.  The paper reviews literature on employee commitment and organizational productivity and made suggestions on how the necessary commitment can be obtained from employees for the organization to achieve its goals.  The paper recommends that values, aims and achievements of the organization be communicated to employees so that they can be proud to identify with it.  It also recommends that management should recognize employees’ contribution.  Management should be fair and just with employees.  Management should rely on consensus and cooperation rather than control and coercion.  Management should establish a single status for all  employees instead of “us and them” culture.  Management should align organizational objectives with that of the individual employees.

Improvement Function and Corporate Growth in the Nigerian Manufacturing Industry.  In Journal of Industrial Engineering Letters.  ISSN 2224-6096 (print) 3 (9) 39-46.

New York, USA

 

This paper investigates the extent to which Production Improvement Function had affected the Corporate Growth of the Nigerian manufacturing industry.  Three hypotheses were formulated and questionnaires were distributed to eighty respondents in the eighty sampled manufacturing firms from the one hundred in the industry, quoted in the Stock Exchange (Fact Book 2009).  Sixty two copies of the questionnaire were retrieved. These with the financial statement of the firms were used for the analysis.  From its findings, the study revealed that production planning and control  have significant impacts on growth of Nigerian manufacturing industry; while production scheduling has an insignificant and weak influence on growth alone.  This finding implies that production improvement function significantly affects the growth of firms.  Based on these, the study recommends among others, that the Nigerian manufacturing industry should efficiently and effectively operationalize the all embracing production improvement function,  especially in the area of production scheduling, in order to restore the industry as the base of all development.

Employee involvement and Organizational Effectiveness. A Study of the Nigerian Banking Industry. Journal of Management Development. ISSN 0262-1711, 32 (I7) 661-674.

Bingley United Kingdom

The study examined the effect of employee involvement on organizational effectiveness in the Nigerian banking industry. A total of 388 managers were randomly drawn from a population of 13,339 managers of all the 24 banks in Nigeria. The instruments used for data collection were questionnaire and oral interview. A total of 320 copies of the questionnaire were retrieved and analyzed. Spearman’s Rank Correlation Statistical tool was used to test the hypotheses. The findings revealed that employee involvement is significantly related to profitability, productivity and market share. Based on these findings we concluded that employee involvement has significant influence on organizational effectiveness. The study therefore recommends that employees should be involved in decision-making process, especially in issues that concern them, as this will make them to be committed to the achievement of such decisions taken.

Managing Behind the Scenes: A View Point on Corporate Culture and Organizational Performance. International Journal of Business and Business Management Review ISSN 2052-6407,  1,(3) 1-13.

Luton, United Kingdom

Corporate culture has become a tool for organizational effectiveness in the 21st century. Corporate culture is said to have benefited many organizations if managed and nurtured properly. In this era of globalization there is need for corporate culture in order to enable organizations respond quickly to changes in the environment. The paper reviews literature on the effect of corporate culture on organizational performance. The paper concludes that the success of organizations to a very large extent depends on their cultures. The paper recommends that managers should put in place an adaptive culture that encourages the involvement of employees as this could enhance their responsiveness and commitment to the achievement of the organizational goals.  The paper also recommends that the managers should share the mission of the organization with employees as it could increase their involvement. Finally the paper recommends that the values of the organization be shared as well to serve as an informal control measure that can be very effective.

Adaptability and Organizational Effectiveness. A study of the Nigeria Banking Industry in Nigeria. International Journal of Business and Management   Tomorrow. ISSN 2249-9962,   2 (3), 122-131

 

India

Drawing on empirical data collected randomly from 320 managers in all the 24 banks in Nigeria, this article examines how adaptability influences organizational effectiveness. The study adopted a cross-sectional survey of the quasi-experimental design.  The independent variable, adaptability was measured by creating change, customer focus and organizational learning. A thirteen-item adaptability scale based on Survey of Organizations questionnaire was used. The dependent variable, organizational effectiveness was measured by profitability, productivity, and market share. The measures all used a 5-point Likert scale- (ranging from 1-strongly disagree to 5-strongly agree), Spearman’s Rank Correlation Statistical tool was used to test the hypotheses. The findings indicate that adaptability positively influences organizational profitability and market share. There is no significant relationship between adaptability and organizational productivity. The results imply that increase in the level of adaptability in organizations will enhance profitability, and market share. This means that adaptability is associated with organizational effectiveness.  It is therefore recommended that in addition to continuous adaptability, organizations should put in place definite plans to minimize cost and waste, as this will promote effectiveness. The result cannot be generalized because the study was carried out only in the banking industry.

New York ,USA

Prior research has not been clear on the role the use-of-dashboard plays in moderating the relationship between competence management and a firm’s corporate performance, notwithstanding that such a moderating effect is conceptually quite plausible. This study, empirically examined the role of use-of-dashboard as a moderator in the sales force competence management – marketing performance relationship. By using Pearson partial correlation test, the study found evidence that supports the moderating effect of use-of-dashboard on the strength of the relationship between sales force competence management and marketing performance. The paper therefore, recommends that firms wishing to fully harness the positive influence of sales force competence management on marketing performance should consider the use-of-dashboard as a veritable contextual option.

The prevalence of dissatisfaction among health sector professionals is well documented in literature and leads to reduction in provision of quality care. The job performance in the health sector is largely dependent on the satisfaction level of the people involved. In Nigeria, the public health sector has been well established and settled to some level- remuneration wise, while the private health sector, especially private hospitals and clinics, are having quite some challenge in coping with benefits available in the public sectors. The objective of this study was to determine how benefits affect job satisfaction and performance among staff in the private medical establishments in Port Harcourt, Nigeria. The study examined relevant literature in the area and concluded that the benefits and remuneration in the private medical sector in Port Harcourt, Nigeria is poor and the level of job satisfaction is also low leading to low job performance. The study therefore recommends that there is need for improvement through advocacy and government regulations.

This study is correlational and adopts the cross sectional survey design in assessing the relationship between exemplary leadership and employee engagement in the Nigerian banking industry. Data for the study was generated from a sample of 201 employees from the main branches of the 21 commercial banks in Port Harcourt Nigeria. Analysis concerned the demographic, primary and secondary data analysis in which frequencies and contingency tables were used to describe the data distribution. The Spearman’s rank order correlation coefficient was used to ascertain the relationship between the study variables and all three hypothetical statements of null relationships between the dimensions of the predictor variable, exemplary leadership (model the way, inspiring a shared vision and enabling others to act) and the criterion variable, employee engagement was rejected given the outcome of significant associations in all three instances. The Findings show that exemplary leadership significantly impacts and enhances employee engagement within the selected banks and propels them to perform better and at optimal levels. Based on the foregoing findings, it was therefore recommended that for organizations; especially banks, to effectively commit and get their workforce engaged with regards to their jobs; it is important for them to recognize exemplary leadership as an imperative pathway to adequately enhancing and motivating their workforce.

Andhra Pradesh, INDIA

This study is necessitated by the growing emphasis in today’s business environment for performance measurement and standards; given changes in relative and associated constructs and settings such as leadership, the socio-economic as well as the socio-political context; hence this study evaluates the effect of succession planning on the maintenance of performance standards by fast-food companies in Nigeria. A total of 62 employees from 21 fast-food outlets in Port Harcourt comprised the sample size for the study; with data generated through the use of structured questionnaire copies. Two hypothetical null statements of no association between the dimensions of succession planning (mentoring and management development) and the maintenance of performance standards were tested and found to be false given the significance of the correlations. Therefore we assert that the careful and predetermined succession of leadership is imperative to the maintenance of performance standards and recommend that adequate policies and frameworks be instituted to support and guide such events

The survival of any entity is determined by the strength of its workforce. This implies that for an organization to increase productivity, employees’ welfare and their emotional status should be taken into consideration. The study therefore, seeks to examine the relationship between supervisors’ self awareness and workers’ productivity in the hotel industry in Bayelsa state. The study adopts the quasi-experimental research design and the stratified random sampling technique to collect the data used for the study. It also made use of the Spearman’s Ranked Order Correlation Coefficient (rho) as the statistical tool to analyze the data with the aid of SPSS version 20. The study found that supervisors self confidence in the hotel industry has given rise to workers efficiency which is influenced by respondents’ levels of education. It also found that supervisors’ accurate self assessment gave rise to workers effectiveness as this is influenced by good treatment of employees by supervisory staffs and hotel management. The study concludes that hotels who encourage supervisors self awareness in the industry are likely to enhanced or increase their workers efficiency and effectiveness which will in-turn lead to increased productivity for the hotels. Based on the findings, the study recommends that hotels who want to survive the turbulent business environment facing the industry should endeavour to recruit competent and more educated individuals who are capable of recognizing their emotions and those of their subordinates; hotels should also create an enabling environment for workers to express their wealth of knowledge and expertise without much interference by hotels management; and finally that workers should be treated as valuable assets by giving them motivational incentives to boost their morale and increase their commitment to service delivery.

.3 (4) 01-06 Available online at: www.ijamee.info

Entrepreneurship goes beyond opening a business. Entrepreneurship covers innovative and inventive business establishment. In this era of dwindling economic indices in Nigeria and Rivers State in particular it has become very urgent for our education managers to reappraise the technical education in scaling up viable economic engagements among the students and graduates. This paper therefore has examined the various areas technical institutions of training, especially the Polytechnic system can through technical training enhance graduates business ownership. Emphasis is laid on the point that people should attach business essence to whatever course they study in the school in addition to the academic garnishing. A situation where Polytechnic graduates or other school leavers from similar institutions roam the street after their training leaves a lot to be desired. This paper has identified that students should start their own businesses while in still in school, in line with what that are studying. Recommendations were made on how Polytechnic institutions can operate this phenomenon seamlessly without the usual financial alibi.

The continuity of leadership necessarily determines the survival of any enterprise. Given the interplay of various organizational elements upon which the success and effectiveness of the outcomes of such continuity lies, this study examined the mediating influence of workplace cliques on the relationship between succession strategies and employee perceptions of leader effectiveness. Analysis is at the micro level with employees of the selected target companies serving as units of measurement. The predictor variable; succession strategies; is operationally measured using two dimensions; intra-firm succession and intra-industry succession strategies. Findings indicate significant associations between the two dimensions of succession strategies and the criterion variable; employee perceptions of leader effectiveness; with intra-firm succession having a higher correlation coefficient with the criterion variable. Workplace cliques are also shown to significantly influence the association between the predictor and the criterion variables. The findings imply that the outcomes of employee perceptions of leader effectiveness highly correlate with succession strategies and suggest interpretations of leader effectiveness as being strongly influenced by workplace leader affiliation or clique membership.

     (12) 122 -127

 

In this research, we investigated the relationship between procedural justice and employees’ commitment to supervisor in Rivers State of Nigeria. A self-administered survey questionnaire was sent out to a sample size of 103 employees, resulting in 99 responses out of which 13 copies of the questionnaire were not statistically usable. The spearman rank correlation coefficient was used for data analysis. This study found a positive and significant relationship between procedural justice and employees’ commitment to supervisor. We found that employees tend to easily identify with supervisors that implement fair procedures than those that do not and employees do study or evaluate their organizations’ justice climate to identify procedural injustice by comparing policies of different organizations. We concluded that, fairness of procedures can reinforce a healthy justice climate and employees’ commitment to supervisor in turn. The justices of outcome and interaction depend mainly on the justice of procedures, as unjust procedures may not turn out a just outcome. We therefore recommended that organizations should commission enquiries into the justice climate of the industries they operate, ascertain the best practice, beat such a practice or at least align procedures, policies and programmes with the principles of fairness.

This study examined the impact of employee coordination and integration on organizational effectiveness. The correlational study was conducted with a sample of 320 managers of all the 24 banks in Nigeria. The findings indicate that coordination and integration are significantly related to profitability, productivity and market share. Based on the findings we conclude that coordination and integration have significant influence on organizational effectiveness. We therefore recommend that organizations must use various means of coordination to achieve its overall mission. Internal integration must also be encouraged as it binds members together and commit them to the organization.

This paper examines the need for staff development and performance in tertiary institutions. Staff development has been relegated to the background for quite a long time since the beginning of the last decade. The study appraised the purpose of staff development in order for them to perform better on their jobs, make good use of equipment to ensure increased productivity and effectiveness. The study also investigated the advantages of staff development and the problems affecting staff development and performance in tertiary institutions, which include poor financing, poor record keeping etc. The paper also evaluated staff development programmes. Some recommendations were made which include; that qualitative training and development should be encouraged for organizations to achieve its goals.

The inevitability of conflict in the workplace in an undisputed reality and so also is the need for its effective handling in order to mitigate unwanted outcomes. Using 3 conflict management styles from the Thomas-Kilman model (1974) namely, collaborating, compromising and accommodating styles, the study investigated (a) the use of these styles by management of some manufacturing firms in Port Harcourt, Nigeria to handle conflict and (b) the relationship between the styles and industrial harmony measured by low strike incidence and mutuality. We hypothesized that no significant relationship exists between the styles and industrial harmony. A cross-sectional survey design was adopted. Questionnaire was administered to a sample of 240-respondents drawn, using Krejcie and Morgan (1972) table, from a population of 642 employees. 219 copies of returned questionnaire were usable. Data generated were analyzed using both descriptive and inferential statistics. Results revealed just about average use of the styles in the management of conflict and that all the styles highly correlated industrial harmony but comparatively more so with the collaborating style. The study concludes that there is need to look beyond conflict management styles in explaining the control of conflict and the achievement of relative harmony in the workplace. We recommend a greater involvement of employees in decisions when conflictual situations are confronted as well as an extension of the tenets of the collaborating styles to include a more integrative problem-solving.

  Interactional justice and employees’ commitment to 
        supervisor in Nigerian Health Sector

This research was designed to study the relationship between interactional justice and employees’ commitment to supervisor in Nigerian health sector. A self-administered survey questionnaire was sent out to a sample size of 103 employees, resulting in 99 responses out of which 13 copies of the questionnaire were not statistically usable. The Spearman rank correlation coefficient was used for data analysis, and our findings reveal that employees who have received fair informational and interpersonal treatments commit themselves to their supervisors. We discovered that the degree of influence exerted by interpersonal justice on employees’ commitment to supervisor was stronger than that of informational justice. We concluded that employees attach themselves to supervisors that are fair in communication and relationship. The fairness of interaction and communication boost employees’ confidence, impacting positively on employees’ commitment to supervisor and making employees see themselves as part owners in the organization. We, therefore, recommended that organizational managers or supervisors should communicate and relate properly with employees, in order to satisfy their customers and other stakeholders.

Towards developing a conceptual model from empirical references For research in impression management. Review of Public Administration and Management Dept.  of Public Admin. Nnamdi Azikiwe  University,

Awka.  ISSN 2315-7844 Pg 119- 123.

Nigeria

The study critically reviewed the literature on impression management to produce a coherent empirical reference for empirical research development on impression phenomenon in organizations. The exploration of the literature revealed that impression management is an embodiment of 5 dimensions that are parsimonious for theory development. This paper identified impression management as a psycho-socio predictor variable that takes a prospective perspective on action and social action paradigms, with the individual as a unit of analysis. Therefore, research on it is considered possible through subjective and/or at least critical realism philosophical research approaches.

Nigeria

The Niger Delta had for long been a place of serious contention between the state and various groups fighting for conscious environmental practice, resource control and development. The region suffered neglect despite various levels of agitation and protests by the people during the military regime. Sustainable development is tied to sustainable peace. This paper examines response of the State to the Niger Delta problem and how the response to the Niger Delta debacle has contributed to the development of the country. Information was gathered from relevant literature. The importance of democratic governance and the role conflict management has played in the environmental security of the Niger Delta was established. The paper recommends that the oil producing companies and government’s measures at conflict management should be increased so that national development will also improve.

Nigeria

Drawing on empirical data collected from 320 managers in all the 24 banks in Nigeria, this article examines how empowerment influences organizational effectiveness. The findings indicate that empowerment positively influences organizational profitability, productivity, and market share.

Towards Practical Entrepreneurship Education through Decision- Making Process for National Economic Development. African Journal of Inter-Disciplinary Studies. 8 (4) August, 2009. Pg 108-114

 

Nigeria

In Nigeria,  the post liberalization  and globalization era has brought with it a growing middle class-roughly estimated to be 250 million and rising disposable income through micro-finance, this presents a huge potential, which if tapped can be a veritable gold mine, entrepreneurs can make the best of this by catering to various demands of this segment. Entrepreneurship education is the major key to promote entrepreneurship development.  Entrepreneurship on the other hand is actually concerned with creating opportunities and meeting the needs of concerned individuals and it is the process of identifying gaps in ones immediate environments and bringing together resources in an innovative way to fill these gaps created in these environments. It also involves the acquisition of knowledge, skills, ideas and managerial abilities necessary for personal self-sufficiency and self-reliance. The focus of this paper is geared towards effective decision making for a more practical entrepreneurship education was the desire of the authors. Recommendations and conclusion to the above effects were stated therein.

Towards Effective Quality Control for Managing Educational Standard
in Nigeria. African Journal of Inter-disciplinary Studies 8 (4) August, 2009. Pg 36-42

 

Nigeria

Most often, people have complained about the standard or quality of education offered to the secondary school students. As a result of this, a lot of educators or educationists have sought to more clearly offer a clear cut of definition of what quality entails so as to help the teachers and the school to be more focused in their attempt to restore qualitative education in the public and private schools. Quality is the event at which awareness of both subjects and objects is made possible through education. Qualitative education deals with the provision of learning exercise which the learner after going through the educational programmes prepared for him or her through the assistance of the teacher becomes a responsible individual. This paper therefore takes a look at the issues that bedevil the standard of education in Nigeria. Certain workable recommendations and conclusion were made therein for government to dwell upon.

Communication Methods of Nigeria Business Organizations.  Journal of Niger Delta Research. RSUST.  ISSN: 1119-2232 Vol 2 No. 1, 2000 pp 24-38

Nigeria

The success or growth of any organisation depends largely on effective management and the level of understanding between the management and the managed. Effective communication is a prerequisite for effective management and that is why this study seeks to know the state of communication in the organizations studied and the effect of the communication methods on the productivity of the Industries. The study is based on five organizations in two Industries (three banks and two manufacturing companies). The result obtained shows that oral, written and pictorial methods of communication are used and this has made clarity, easy reference and effective management, possible in the organizations studied.

Nigeria

Nigeria’s economic history has shown remarkable expansion but the growth has not been steady. There has been periods of price instability (inflation) which has adversely affected employment and output. Presently we are plagued with the dangerous experience of stagflation, which is a simultaneous rise in price coupled with unemployment. This paper seeks to identify the effects of inflation on the nation’s economy, and how the inflation can be brought within controllable level. A case study of Rivers State is taken to highlight the situation.

Port Harcourt, Nigeria.

The advent of Modern Office Tools, have caused pleasant alteration in office processes and routine.  This paper has considered and advocated for the need for offices to go paperless.  Paperless office has the potential to be more efficient in the aspects of service delivery and cost reduction.  In these days of biting economic challenges and myriad calls for economic diversification, it behooves on organizations to reduce the cost of their operational expenses which includes costs of papers, ink, toner, repairs and maintenance of printers and personnel costs.  Paperless Office awareness will contribute to engaging widespread ICT competence since organization staff will not have any other option but to use the ICT tools. This will call for the training and retraining of office workers in order not to lose the trend.   The how-abouts of what organizations and companies need to do to go paperless have been identified to include deployment of paperless enabling softwares such as SAP (Systems Applications and Products), Internet and Intranet facilities, digital archiving devices.  The paper identified government agencies and establishments as a possible last group to paperless office owing to the bureaucratic tie-down tendencies of government offices in Nigeria. However, international best practices have been advocated for government organizations to adopt in order to safeguard documents.  Recommendations on how organizations can encourage paperless office were also made.

OSUOJI IS ASIEGBU Local Production of Ice Cream and Mayonnaise using Local and Conventional Hydrocolloids. In the Journal of food and fibre Production. 2009; 2(1): 411-422. This project work focused on the performance of some selected local thickeners. Brachystegia eurycoma (achi), Deterium microcarpum (ofor), Mucuna flagellipes (ukpor), in the production of quality ice cream and mayonnaise as compared to conventional stabilizers, gelatin and carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC).quality characteristics such as proximate composition, functional and physical properties, as well as sensory evaluation were used to evaluate the performance of the thickeners. It was observed that CMC had the highest value for shape factor (78%) and Ukpor (28%) had the least meaning that ukpor had an undue spreading more than the rest. Achi-based ice cream had the highest ice crystals 0.500mm while CMC-based ice cream had the least ice crystal size, 0.024mm. This showed that CMC is a better stabilizer for ice cream than the others followed by gelatin. The least performed stabilizer was found to be ofor. Mayonnaise made with gelatin was found to be the best in consistency while sample from ofor was the poorest.

In the West African Journal of Foods and Nutrition. 2014; 12(2): 18-24 Efforts to increase utilization of fruits and vegetables in human nutrition necessitate increased knowledge of their nutritive value. Pumpkin (Cucurbita pepo) grows wildly and is also widely cultivated for its leaf, fruit and seed. The effect of blanching on the nutrient and anti-nutrient content of pumpkin (Cucurbita pepo) was determined. 
Analysis was done on air-dried and blanched pumpkin leaves. Proximate, mineral and antinutritional composition were analysed using standard procedure. Data were analysed using descriptive statistics and analysis of Variance (ANOVA) at 5% level of significance. 
There was significant reduction (p<0.05) in the protein, crude fiber, ash, sodium, potassium, β-carotene and ascorbic acid content of pumpkin leaves while reduction in fat and iron content was not significant. Blanching increased the carbohydrate and calcium content though not significantly (p>0.05). The identified anti-nutrients content were saponin (35.0±0.00mg/100g), tannin (24.5±0.71mg/100g), oxalate (12.0±0.00mg/100g) and phytates (15.0±0.00mg/100g). Blanching was effective in reducing the level of identified anti-nutrients in pumpkin leaves significantly (p<0.05), thereby promoting the level of nutrient bioavailability. However, there is significant loss in the leaves micronutrients (p<0.05) hence, other methods of preparation that will reduce the loss of nutrients and effectively reduce the level of antinutrients need to be explored for better utilization of Cucurbita pepo by humans

Accepted for publication in the Journal of Hospitality Management and Tourism. 2017; 7(1). This paper examined the role of Tangible Culture Conservation (TCC) in the enhancement of Inbound Tourism (IT); which has been acclaimed a major source of foreign earnings. It focused on how the rich and diverse cultural heritage of Nigeria can be efficiently harnessed for economic diversification and growth. Two research questions guided the study; while it was hypothesized that ‘there is no significant relationship between TCC and positive impact of IT’, and ‘there is no significant relationship between TCC and negative impact of IT’. Due to the richness of her culture, the Kalabari community was chosen for the study; and a sample of 399 was randomly selected using the Taro Yamane formula. Data was generated both from the primary and secondary sources using a questionnaire and relevant literature respectively. The Spearman rank order correlation (rho) aided the analysis which showed a high positive relationship between TCC and the positive impact of IT and a low positive relationship between TCC and the negative impact of IT. It was concluded that TCC when properly packaged and marketed can boost IT and grow the economy. The study recommended the resuscitation, development, conservation and promotion of the Nigerian cultures for greater economic benefits.
4 Asiegbu, U. A. and Igwe P. (2017) Local Food Purchasing Strategies and Profitability of Restaurants in Selected Towns in Rivers State. Accepted for publication in the Journal of Business and Value Creation (JBVC) 2017; 5(2).
As part of the challenges facing the food service sector, problems associated with food purchasing seem to be underemphasized. Proper food purchasing methods may have a positive effect on profit and business sustainability. Consistent menu quality depends on proper food purchasing strategy among other factors. This study was carried out in four Local Government Areas in Rivers State. A simple random sampling method was used and the data was analysed using correlation via the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS). The research found out that about 57% of the studied population had existing food purchasing standards and about 54% follow these standards. A significant negative relationship was found between staff training and profit. Business professionals need to create more awareness on food purchasing standards and regulations for food service operators.

Foreign The Effect of Blanching on the Nutrients and Anti-nutritional Factors of the Leaves of Tender and Mature Bombax Costatum. Accepted for publication in the Journal of Food and Nutrition Research. 2017; 5(5), Vegetables being the edible parts of herbaceous plant mostly consumed by man and animals have varying nutritional compositions. They provide rich sources of vitamins and minerals. In Nigeria most vegetables are eaten after processing which may be blanching or steaming. The objective of this study was to determine the effect of blanching on the nutrients and anti-nutritional factors of the leaves of tender and mature Bombax costatum. Bombax costatum is a tree crop and the leaves are consumed as vegetables. The methods described by AOAC (1990) were used. The results show that Bombax costatum had a high moisture content which significantly increased with blanching. For tender Bombax costatum the blanching process led to a reduction in the fat, anti-nutritional factors and the vitamins as well as sodium, calcium, iron and phosphorus contents significantly (P˂0.05). It is recommended to produce and consume a mixture of Green Leafy Vegetable.

1. Asiegbu, U. A. and Fadupin, G.T. (2015) “Effect Of Blanching on the Nutrient and Anti-Nutrient Content of an Under-Utilized Green Leafy Vegetable (Solanium Incanum) in Nigeria”. In the Book of Proceedings of Nigerian Institute of Food Science and Technology39th Annual Conference and General Meeting Owerri, Nigeria, 13-16th October, 2015. Theme: “Food Industrialization: Pathway to Agribusiness Transformation.” Edible vegetables are vital components of human diet comprising of bio-chemicals necessary for human metabolism. The fight against malnutrition and under-nutrition continues to be a basic goal for development and a variety of strategies are adopted. Strategies based on nutrient-rich foods like vegetables are considered essential for the supply of micronutrients. The foliage of Solanium incanum (garden egg leaves) is one of the under-utilized green leafy vegetables in Nigeria. It is necessary to have an increased knowledge of its nutritive value in order to popularize it. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine the effect of blanching on the nutrients and anti-nutritional factors of the leaves of Solanium incanum. The methods described by FAO (1968) were used. Descriptive statistics and analysis of variance were used to analyze the data. The results show that blanching led to a significant increase in the calcium content of this vegetable and a significant reduction in sodium potassium and iron contents. The leaves of Solanum incanum contained varying amount of nutrients and anti-nutritional factors most of which were affected significantly by blanching. It had a good combination of sodium and potassium content. These nutrients in the vegetables are helpful in the prevention of some non-communicable diet related diseases. Consumption of a variety of vegetables will enable one to derive a full dose of the benefits in them since no single plant is rich in all the plant chemicals.
