Examples

  • Flatulence-causing oligosaccharides, such as stachyose and raffinose, are completely hydrolyzed.

  • Most of us think of gluten as the main culprit in grain sensitivities, allergies and immune system insults, but there are several other organic compounds such as raffinose, stachyose, phytic acid phytates, lectins and verbascose that are harmful irritants to humans yet well-tolerated and nourishing for ruminants.

  • Many beans contain the complex sugars raffinose, stachyose and xylose which are not digestible by humans and many other animals.

    3: Staple crops

  • Analysis has shown that the level of raffinose and stachyose (sugars that lead to flatulence) is less in winged bean than in soybean.

    3 Food Use and Nutritive Value

  • The loss of these oligosaccharides (like raffinose and stachyose) from the beans into the soaking water has at least two possible consequences.

  • Glucose, trehalose, raffinose, and stachyose were positively correlated with Bt cotton plants, and negatively with the variety MECH 12.

  • A positive correlation among the amount of erlose and sorbitol and a negative correlation with melebiose, stachyose, and mannitol were observed in the data set.
