....sry more talk about grains....does this even make sense? how can an ANTI-nutrient be good?
products (Gerhardt & Gallo, 1998).
Antinutrients found in grains include digestive enzyme
(protease and amylase) inhibitors, phytic acid, haemagglutinins,
and phenolics and tannins. Protease inhibitors,
phytic acid, phenolics and saponins have been shown to
reduce the risk of cancer of the colon and breast in animals.
Phytic acid, lectins, phenolics, amylase inhibitors and
saponins have also been shown to lower plasma glucose,
insulin and/or plasma cholesterol and triacylglycerols
(Slavin et al. 1999). In grains, protease inhibitors make up
5–10 % of the water-soluble protein and are concentrated in
the endosperm and embryo.
