Abstract

Physical properties, chemical composition and nulritional quality potentials of the seeds of Iwo cultivars of Cajanus cajan were stlldied. D!fferences between the t,vo cultivars were less pronounced except in their conterJls oj calcium, phosphorus, pl1ytic acid, lIYjJqin in{1ibitolY activity and g(utelins. :/n addUion, botl1 cultivars c;ontained valuable nutrie~1t:~amj food elu;rgy comparable to those of the :comlllon~v cons)lmed seed legumes. Presence of ta/1l1ins, phytie aGie/, m'alate, phenolics and tl)'Psininhibilors in the seeds may not constitute any problem in the utilization of the nutrients once the seeds are subjected to processing involving either heat treatment, soaking, dehu/ling and ge;'mination or their combination before consumption.
