Nutrients In, RFOs Out
Abstract:The chickpea has many nutrients, however it also contains Raffinose Family Oligosaccharides (RFO) which are indigestible to humans. I have compared the value of RFO after soaking, boiling, microwaving and germinating the chickpeas; the Synchrotron facility was used to analyze and compare the mineral content. This project provides information about the method to consume chickpeas with maximum mineral quantity and highest reduction in RFO content.
