Nine (9) anti-nutrients (Tannin: 0.49%, Phytates: 1.20%, Oxalates: 0.18%, Saponins: 5.50%, Hydrogen cyanide: 1.46mg/kg, Alkaloids: 6.00%, total phenols: 0.61%, Flavonoids: 4.00% and oligosaccharides: 27.50%) were found to be present in the raw seed. During processing there was a general reduction trend of the anti-nutrients at different rates but total elimination of saponins, alkaloids and flavonoids was achieved at 40min cooking while oxalates were totally eliminated at 60min… CONTINUE READING
