  Akshay S.Gawankar,  Aniket S. Dere,  Vinayak V. Ghadi,  Sharddha Pathare

Nigella sativa is one of the most Useful medicinal seeds in history also important in developing agriculture sector nowadays.“NigellaSativa(Kalonji) Can cure every disease except Death”.Enzyme-assisted extraction is a safe and efficient oil extraction process. Seeds of Nigella sativa, a dicotyledon of the Ranunculaceae family, have been employed for thousands of years as a spice and food preservative. The oil and seed constituents, in particular thymoquinine (TQ), have shown potential medicinal properties in traditional medicine. In seeds a component Thymoquinine is present almost 50% of seed and having Anti carcenogenic Property. Nigella Sativa oil was extracted with different types of enzymes (Hemicellulase, Pectinase, Acid protease ,Protease ,Cellulase). Enzymes are useful for extraction give better yield and and catalysed the reaction by minimizing residence time. The temperature for the extraction process is maintained at 65-70 °C and 1 bar for the pressure. The oil extracts along with the control sample were further analyzed to determine their composition and yield.

Keywords- Dicotyledon , preservative , thymoquinine , Anticarcenogenic, Hemicellulase, Pectinase, Acid protease ,Protease ,Cellulase
