 en Efficiency Of Inactivation Of Trypsin Inhibitory Activity In Some Selected Tropical Plant Seeds By Autoclaving
Ezeagu, Ikechukwu E.

Abstract

Trypsin inhibitor (TI) levels in the crop seeds varied between 0.0 in Adansonia digitata check for this species in other resources and 40.8 TIU/mg in Pterocarpus osun check for this species in other resources . Efficiency of inactivation of TI by autoclaving ranged from 58.1% in Millettia thonningii check for this species in other resources to 100% in Sesbania pachycarpa check for this species in other resources and Lonchocarpus. sericeus check for this species in other resources . It is concluded that the effect of heat treatment on TI varies with plant species and could be dependent on the structural formula of each TI.
