Sapota (Manilkara zapota) comes under family Sapotaceae and it is one of the significant fruit crops which is grown and developed in India. Sapota is rich in fibres, vitamins, calcium, phosphorous and iron, and polyphenolic compounds. It prevents constipation, cavities in tooth, viral infections and shows anti-bacterial properties and helps in prevention from cough and cold, helps in losing weight and act as a detoxifying agent. Recent investigations have been established its importance in cancer treatment as well as antimicrobial activity by developing silver nanoparticles. Therefore due to its nutritional significance sapota was part of many food formulations as probiotics, wine and many other food and dairy products. The present study envisages the nutritional significance of the fruit so that it may be potentially applied in food applications.
