Abstract. The effect of different conditions of germination at a semi-pilot scale on the content of available soluble sugars, alpha-galactosides, vitamins B1 and B2, and inositol phosphates of beans, lentils and peas have been studied. Results obtained indicated that germination modified the nutritional composition of legumes depending on the type of legume and germination conditions. The storage compounds present in dry seeds (alpha-galactosides and higher forms of inositol phosphates…

Effect of germination on total dietary fibre and total sugar in selected legumes.
Overall, germination has improved nutritional properties of legume in terms of dietary fibre and total sugar content but the changes are influenced by the type of legumes.
Nutritional Properties of Germinated Legumes
  • 2014
Germination is a cheap way of improving quality of legumes. This study aimed to compare the effect of germination in selected legumes (kidney beans-K, mung beans-M, soy beans-S and peanuts-P).
Changes in chemical composition of germinated leguminous under abiotic stress conditions
Plant-based foods are a good source of nutrients, dietary fibre, minerals and phenolic compounds. Legumes, particulary, beans contain bioactive components like phenolic compounds (flavonoids,
Effect of germination on total phenolic, tannin and phytic acid contents in soy bean and peanut.
Legume is a plant in the family of Fabacae or Leguminosae that rich in protein, carbohydrate, dietary fibre, and minerals. Germination of legume causes some important changes in the biochemical and a
Effect of Traditional processing Methods on Nutritional Quality of Field Bean
There was an increase in the carbohydrate content under all methods of processing except upon germination, and a reduction in carbohydrate and lipid content in germinated Field bean is beneficial for people suffering from diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease and hypercholesterolemia.
