This study attempts to elucidate the secondary metabolite profiles of Ficus lyrata leaves and fruits grown in Egypt. Non-targeted metabolite profiling via ultra performance liquid chromatography (UPLC)-qTOF-MS was used to identify various chemical classes in F. lyrata fruits and leaves (i.e. flavonoids, phenolic acids and fatty acids) analysed by chemometrics. A total of 72 metabolites were evaluated via a UPLC-qTOF-MS-based metabolomic study. Seventeen flavonoids were characterised and tentatively identified with the main constituents being catechins/procyanidins, O- and C-linked flavonoid glycosides. The major procyanidins were dimers and trimers comprising (epi)catechin and (epi)afzelechin units, whereas the predominant flavones were C-glycosides of luteolin and apigenin. Aside from these major flavonoid classes, a group of benzoic acids, caffeoylquinic acids, fatty acid and sphingolipids were also annotated. This study provides the most complete map for polyphenol distribution in F. lyrata leaves and fruits and the basis for future investigation of its fruits nutritional value or possible nutraceutical uses.
