Abstract:
The present study was done on phytonutritional characteristics in popular soybean cultivars. Seeds have % carbohydrates ranged from 28.03- 29.70. Crude fiber% 13.51- 15.83, total soluble sugars% 8.71- 10.51, non-reducing sugars 7.18- 8.70, reducing sugars% 1.38- 1.81, oil content% 19.03-20.83, and ash content 5.10- 5.22% estimated in seeds. Proteins 37.45- 41.27% and have all essential amino acids with superior quality beside energy value from 442.35- 456.19 Kcal/100g in full fat soy seeds flour. Polysaccharides starch content mg/100g ranged from 1050- 1150, amylose 234.35- 247.93 and amylopectin 802.07- 904.14 respectively in seeds dry matter. Minerals matter which is essential for bone formation an ideal skeleton as K mg/100g ranged from 1713- 1831, P 630-640, Ca 291- 319, Mg 242-291, Na 2.91-3.41, Mn 2.48- 3.70, Fe 12.35-14.90, Cu 1.20-1.52 and Zn 4-4.33 mg/100g, N 6051-6736 mg100g respectively. These super quality as cheaper soy phytonutrients are targeted for malnourished or under malnourished community suffering about thirty percent of total population in India. Therapeutic used as whole food source for communities’ traditional and modern kitchen system
