Does cooking affect the phytate content in local soy based dishes ?

  title={Does cooking affect the phytate content in local soy based dishes ?},
  author={Raja Muda and Abdul Hadi Abdul Aziz},
This study aimed to determine the effect of cooking on phytate content and the inhibitory effects of phytate on the bioavailability of minerals in eight Malaysian soy based dishes. Phytate was analyzed by using anion-exchange chromatography while minerals were analyzed by using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer. Molar ratios were obtained by dividing the mole of phytate to minerals. Phytate content was reduced in cooked dishes compared to the raw ones but it was not significantly different (P…

Effect of coagulants on the physicochemical properties of fresh tofu

Soy flour from soybean was processed to produce fresh tofu using three coagulants namely lime, Epson salt and tamarind. The results obtained showed that the pH of the samples were 7.20 for Epson


The present investigation was designed to study the influence of replacement of wheat flour by either sprouted wheat or barley flour at different levels, i.e. 5, 10 and 15 % on the produced cake



Determination of phytate, iron, zinc, calcium contents and their molar ratios in commonly consumed raw and prepared food in malaysia.

Results show that although many of the food samples analysed had high mineral content, the high phytate content may impair the bioavailability of the mineral in the body.

Phytate, calcium, iron, and zinc contents and their molar ratios in foods commonly consumed in China.

Although many foods were relatively rich in calcium, zinc, and iron, many also contained a higher level of phytate, which impair the bioavailability of calcium, iron, and zinc.

A Review of Phytate, Iron, Zinc, and Calcium Concentrations in Plant-Based Complementary Foods Used in Low-Income Countries and Implications for Bioavailability

To ensure the World Health Organization estimated needs for these minerals from plant-based complementary foods for breastfed infants are met, dephytinization must be combined with enrichment with animal-source foods and/or fortification with appropriate levels and forms of mineral fortificants.

Effect of natural fermentation on in vitro zinc bioavailability in cereal–legume mixtures

There is increasing concern about zinc availability from cereal-based vegetarian diets and the need to improve its native bioavailability. Effects of natural fermentation on zinc availability were

The zinc nutritional status in south Koreans was established by evaluation of zinc, calcium and phytate intakes, the molar ratio of phytate: zinc, and the millimolar ratio of phytate × calcium: zinc.

The Influence of Soaking and Germination on the Phytase Activity and Phytic Acid Content of Grains and Seeds Potentially Useful for Complementary Feeding

Germination, but not soaking, increased phytase activity 3 to 5-fold in some cereal grains and legume seeds, while the influence on phytic acid content was insignificant in most materials tested.

Phytate × Calcium/Zinc Molar Ratios: Are They Predictive of Zinc Bioavailability?

The utility of the phytate/zinc and phytate × calcium/zinc molar ratios for predicting zinc bioavailability from processed soybean foods was investigated. Weight gain and bone zinc accumulation in
