Mineral composition and oxalic acid in horse gram dolichos biflorus



Mineral composition and oxalic acid in horse gram dolichos biflorus



Indian Journal of Agricultural Sciences 49(9): 712-714



In 27 improved varieties of horse gram (D. biflorus Linn.) the total mineral content varied from 2.2 to 3.3%. All the varieties showed high amounts of Ca (average 285 mg/100 g of flour) and P (average 363 mg/100 g of flour). The Ca:P ratio varied from 1:1 to 1:1.9. HOrse gram also contained a good amount of Fe (33.8 mg/100 g of flour). The oxalic acid content of these varieties was high (318/100 g of flour), even higher than the Ca content, except in '33 A/7', "BJ9', 'N 16', 'No. 43', 'Kerala Local', 'BR 5' and 'Ganapati Pule'.
