Bioactive compounds in cashew nut (Anacardium occidentale L.) kernels: effect of different shelling methods.
Conventional shelling methods revealed a significant reduction, whereas the Flores hand-cracking method exhibited similar levels of carotenoids, thiamin, and unsaturated fatty acids in cashew nuts when compared to raw unprocessed samples. Expand
Effect of soaking and hydrothermal processing methods on the levels of antinutrients and in vitro protein digestibility of Bauhinia purpurea L. seeds
Of the attempted treatments, autoclaving appeared to be most effective in reducing levels of all the investigated antinutrients, except phytic acid, and also improved the in vitro protein digestibility of B. purpurea seeds. Expand
Alternative Food/Feed Perspectives of an Underutilized Legume Mucuna pruriens var. Utilis—A Review
The present review has been emphasized on the nutritional potential of this underutilized, nonconventional legume and current state of its utilization as food/feed for both human beings and livestock throughout the world. Expand
Nutritional and Antinutritional Characteristics of Seven South Indian Wild Legumes
Profiles of amino acids of total seed proteins detected in the present study revealed that levels of valine, phenylalanine, tyrosine, isoleucine, and histidine of all the seven wild legume seed samples were found to be higher than FAO/WHO (1991) requirement pattern. Expand
Nutritional and anti-nutritional attributes of the under-utilized legume, Cassia floribunda Cav.
Three germplasm seed samples of the under-utilized legume, Cassia floribunda Cav. Expand
Total free phenolic content and health relevant functionality of Indian wild legume grains: Effect of indigenous processing methods
In all the studied seed materials, sprouting-+ oil-frying treatment revealed significantly higher total free phenolic content, antioxidant and type II diabetes relevant functionality, than open-pan roasting or soaking + cooking, and sprouting +-oil-Frying is recommended as valuable processing method for the use of wild legume grains in the local production of supplementary foods.
