Aesculus indica seeds were various treated under different processing techniques to achieve maximum removal its saponin/ aescin content which is toxic if consumed seeds as raw. The mineral viz. calcium, manganese, zinc, iron and copper were estimated. The methods used were as Fresh sample (T0), Percolator/ cold extraction (T1), Roasted (T2), Soxhlet (T3), Microwave cooking whole seed (MW), Microwave cooking crush seed (MC) Pressure cooking (PW), 10 minute whole seed boiling (B1W), 20 minute whole seed boiling (B2W), 30 minute whole seed boiling (B3W), 10 minute crush seed boiling (B1C), 20 minute crush seed boiling (B2C), 30 minute crush seed boiling (B3C). It was found that the treatment T3 contains more Calcium (34.80 mg/100g) comparatively. Manganese was found maximum in T1 and T2 treatments as 2.50 and 2.30 mg/100g respectively, which were almost similar when compared with other treatment. Zinc content in B2W was high as 782.40 mg/100g. Iron value of MC was reported as 64.00 (mg/100 g) upper limits. And copper as 1.20 mg/100g in MW treatment.
