Abstract:
The basic purpose of the study was to assess and compare the anti nutritional factors and antioxidant activity of the three genotypes of the adzuki bean viz. Local Totru, HPU-51 and EC-340264. Anti nutritional factors like phytic acid and trypsin inhibitors were assessed along with the flavonoid content of the adzuki bean seeds. The phytic acid content of the seeds ranged from 368.96 to 507.92 mg/100g. The percent inhibition of the seeds ranged from the 52 to 77 percent in all the three genotypes. The study can be useful for the producer and consumer to harvest the benefits of adzuki bean based value added products.
