The nutritional evaluation of protein, carbohydrate, lipid and mineral from the seaweed Ulva lactuca has been carried out. The present study is to know the nutritional ingredient of the seaweed Ulva lactuca for utilization in human nutrition in the future. Results show that carbohydrate was the major ingredient in the proximate analysis of U.lactuca in the present work. The carbohydrate content was 18%, protein was 14% and lipid was 2.9%. The mineral content was analyzed in this study Zinc, Magnesium, Calcium and Manganese content are 0.459 mg/L, 0.233 mg/L, 0.002 mg/L and 0.001 mg/L respectively. The chemical composition of U. lactuca indicates that it has a good potential for its use in human food.
