Chemical composition and protein quality of the little-known legume, velvet bean (Mucuna pruriens (L.) DC.)
The chemical composition and nutritional characteristics of seeds of Mucuna pruriens were investigated. The mature seeds contained 314.4 g/kg crude protein, 51.6 g/kg crude fiber, 67.3 g/kg crudeExpand
Effect of different post-harvest treatments on antinutritional factors in seeds of the tribal pulse, Mucuna pruriens (L.) DC.
The effect of soaking, cooking and autoclaving on the levels of certain antinutritional factors present in the tribal pulse, Mucuna pruriens, were studied. The amount of reduction of total freeExpand
Chemical analysis and nutritional assessment of lesser known pulses of the genus, Mucuna
Abstract Two samples of seed materials of the Indian tribal pulse, Mucuna utilis, were collected from different forests in Tamil Nadu, India. The seeds of another tribal pulse, M. monosperma, wereExpand
Effects of various water or hydrothermal treatments on certain antinutritional compounds in the seeds of the tribal pulse,Dolichos lablab var.vulgaris L.
Effects of soaking, cooking and autoclaving on changes in polyphenols, phytohaemagglutinating activity, phytic acid, hydrogen cyanide (HCN), oligosaccharides and in vitro protein digestibility wereExpand
Nutritional and Antinutritional Properties of the Underexploited Legumes Cassia laevigata Willd. and Tamarindus Indica L.
Abstract The nutrient composition and antinutritional factors of two underexploited tribal pulses, Cassia laevigata and Tamarindus indica were analyzed. The seeds contained 20.8 and 13% crudeExpand
Nutritional and chemical evaluation of raw seeds ofCanavalia gladiata (Jacq) DC. and C.ensiformis DC: The under utilized food and fodder crops in India
In India, the seeds ofCanavalia gladiata andC. ensiformis have traditionally been eaten by the aborigines, but they are less popular among the civilized people. The data on the chemical compositionExpand
Nutritional and Antinutritional Characteristics of Seven South Indian Wild Legumes
Seeds from seven species of wild legumes of the South India were analyzed for proximate composition, mineral profiles, amino acid profiles of total seed protein, in vitro protein digestibility, andExpand
Chemical composition, amino acid content and protein quality of the little-known legume Bauhinia purpurea L.
Some nutritional and antinutritional characteristics and biological value of Bauhinia purpurea L seeds were studied. The mature seeds contained (g kg-1 as is) 271·7 crude protein, 58·7 crude fibre,Expand
Nutritional and anti-nutritional attributes of the under-utilized legume, Cassia floribunda Cav.
Abstract Three germplasm seed samples of the under-utilized legume, Cassia floribunda Cav., collected from three locations of South India were analyzed for proximate composition, mineral profiles,Expand
Biochemical characterization of the tribal pulse, Mucuna utilis wall ex. wight. seeds
The proximate composition, mineral composition, protein fractionation, antinutritional compounds like polyphenolics and phytolectins and in vitro protein digestibility of four different germplasm ofExpand
