Abstract:
NIRS is an advance, fast, reliable and non-destructive technique extensively used in chemical, food, petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries for rapid and reliable standardization. NIRS of Cicer arietinum L. Desi and Kabuli variety seed flours was performed for qualitative evaluation of secondary metabolites. The major suggested compounds in Cicer arietinum Desi and Kabuli variety were found as adenine, biochanin-A, biochanin-B, biochannin A 7-O- β -D-glucoside, calycosin, cerebroside, choline, ciceritol, citric acid, diadzein, fructose, garbanzol, genistein, glucose, inositol, isoliquiritigen, liquiritigenin, methyl tetracosanoate, ononin, pyrimidine, saccharose, sissotrin, stigmasterol, trifolirhizin. β- amyrin and β-sitosterol. The presence of these compounds justifies the use of Cicer arietinum as nutritional food and tonic.
