Medicinal plants have bioactive compounds which are used for curing various human diseases and also play an important role in healing. The phytochemical analysis of the plants is very important commercially and has great interest in pharmaceutical companies for the production of the new drugs for curing of various diseases. Knowledge on the plant phytochemistry provides a fundamental use of plants as a reservoir of chemical agents. In the present study laboratory evaluations were made to qualitatively assess primary metabolites and secondary metabolites in ethanolic seed extracts of Theobroma cacao and Coffee arabica.The results obtained from the present study provides evidence that the extractscontain medicinally important bioactive compounds and this justifies the use of plant species as traditional medicine for treatment of various diseases.
