Papaya is broadly known for its taste and medical advantages yet very few individuals know about the massively helpful Papaya seeds that are by-products of fruit and are generally discarded. These small round black seeds are edible and useful for our wellbeing whenever taken in a restricted amount. Their reuse will be useful not only for the economy and environment rather; it will prove to be a ray of hope for the food industries engaged in the search for plant-based food ingredients to enhance the nutritional status of functional foods. In this review, we have discussed the composition, medicinal properties, its utilization as a nutritive agent, and a promising preservative.

Keywords: Bio-Actives, Fruit Waste, Functional Foods, Papaya Seeds, Value- Added Products.
