Anti-nutritional factors are compounds which reduce the nutrient utilization and/or food intake of plants or plant products used as human foods and they play a vital role in determining the use of plants for humans. This paper is aimed to review the updated scientific information regarding the potential health benefits and adverse effects associated with major antinutritional factors found in plant foods. Antinutrients in plant foods are responsible for deleterious effects related to the… Expand

Review was carried out on important ant- nutritional factors and toxins in animal feed, their effect on animals and possible mechanisms to reduce toxicity.  The major anti- nutrients found in plantExpand
Role of lacto-fermentation in reduction of antinutrients in plant-based foods
TLDR
The purpose of this review was to provide information about the different types of antinutrients present in plant sources, their possible effects on the human body, and the benefits of lacto-fermentation over other conventional food processing approaches such as soaking, germination, and heating in the reduction of ant inutrients. Expand
Antinutrients in Plant-based Foods: A Review

IMPACT OF PROCESSING ON NUTRITIONAL AND ANTINUTRITIONAL FACTORS OF LEGUMES: A REVIEW
Legumes grain seeds are broadly developed and consumed all over the world. Legumes are considered as an important constituent of human diet, economical source of energy, proteins, carbohydrates,Expand
Incrimnating Factors in Rice Bean
TLDR
Pulses are essential component in making the diets of human and animals nutritionally rich owing to their richness in protein and other macro and micronutrients and have also been shown to be posses beneficial therapeutic potential in their optimum concentration. Expand
Nutritional and bioactive characterization of unexplored food rich in phytonutrients
TLDR
Underutilized and unexplored plants provide the potential to variegate the human diet; so introducing these neglected herbs would increase the consumption of nutrient-rich food plants, and application of multidisciplinary research and modern techniques could accelerate the addition of underutilized plant species into consumers' diets.

There are a number of components present in soybeans that exert a negative impact on the nutritional quality of the protein and the allergenic response that may sometimes occur in humans, as well as calves and piglets, on dietary exposure to soybeans. Expand
The need for adequate processing to reduce the anti- nutritional factors in plants used as human foods and animal feeds: A review
TLDR
The aim of this review is to emphasize on the adequate processing of foods/feeds and to educate the people on the dangers of consuming improperly processed foods especially legumes which are reported to contain very high concentrations of anti-nutritional factors. Expand

An optimum thermal process can increase the stability and maintain the saponins in canned bean products, which is useful for assisting the food industry to improve thermal processing technology and enhance bean product quality. Expand
Probiotics and other key determinants of dietary oxalate absorption.
TLDR
There is a lack of consensus in the literature as to whether efficiency of oxalate absorption is dependent on the proportion of total dietary oxalic acid that is in a soluble form, but studies that directly compared foods of varying solubleOxalate contents have generally supported the proposition that the amount of soluble oxalates in food is an important determinant of Oxalate bioavailability.

TLDR
In humans, diets low in calcium and high in oxalates are not recommended but the occasional consumption of high oxalate foods as part of a nuritious diet does not pose any particular problem. Expand
