Studies on the chemical and nutritional changes in Bengal gram (Cicer arietinum) during storage caused by the attack of pulse beetle (Callosobruchus maculatus Fabr.)



Studies on the chemical and nutritional changes in Bengal gram (Cicer arietinum) during storage caused by the attack of pulse beetle (Callosobruchus maculatus Fabr.)



Bulletin of Grain Technology 19(3): 185-190



Jars containing 500 g Bengal gram and 10 pulse beetles were stored at 25 plus or minus 2 deg C and 60-75% relative humidity for 6 months. Initial and final composition was moisture 12.2 and 15.2, protein 16.4 and 32.8, fat 4.4 and 4.7, ash 2.6 and 4.7, fibre 7.9 and 20.0, starch 55.6 and 28.7, sugars 3.4 and 2.6%, and in mg/100 g, uric acid 0 and 2320, calcium 220 and 440 and phosphorus 314 and 437, respectively.
