Comparative digestibility and the inhibition of mammalian digestive enzymes from mature and immature cowpea (Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.) seeds



Comparative digestibility and the inhibition of mammalian digestive enzymes from mature and immature cowpea (Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.) seeds



Food Control 15(2): 107-110



Globulins and albumins from mature cowpea seeds had inhibitory activity levels of 9.5 and 67.1 units trypsin inhibited per mg protein and globulins and albumins from immature seeds had trypsin inhibitory activity levels of 6.3 and 26.6 units trypsin inhibited per mg protein, respectively. Albumins from immature seeds had inhibitory activity level of 4 units salivary amylase inhibited per mg albumin.
