The present investigation is aimed to quantify the phytochemicals present in the pseudobulbs of Crepidium acuminatum (D. Don) Szlach (Family-Orchidaceae). Total fat content was found to be 1.45 ± 0.13%, whereas Alkaloid content as 5±0.52%, Resin content was observed as 0.9±0.1 %, tannin content was 9.25±0.21%, Crude fiber content was found to be 5.1±0.69%. Saponin content was 2±0.48%. Phenolic content was 70.9± 0.53 (μg Gallic Acid equivalent/ml of extract). Total flavonoid content was 34.27 ±0.61 (μg Quercetin equivalents/ml of extract), whereas carbohydrate content was observed as 112±1.7 (μgGlucose equivalents/ml of extract) in 80% ethanol extract, Total saponin content was 184±1.2 (μg saponin equivalents/ml of extract).
