It is known for its medicinal qualities such as antidiabetic, anticarcinogenic, hypocholesterolemic, antioxidant, and immunological activities. There for in this study we prepared the fenugreek powder as nutraceutical from seeds of Trigonella foenum graecum. It is evaluated for chemical test, particle size.
