Abstract

Five greengram varieties, viz. Mg 161, M3, Co2, Pusa 8793 and Pusa baisakhi, were analyzed for phytic acid, tannic acid and trypsin activity. Significant varietal variation in tannin (310 to 400 mg percent), phytic acid (201.33 to 265.33 mg percent) and trypsin inhibitor activity (55.74 to 97.70 TIU/mg) were observed.
