Abstract:
Though the inclusion of underutilised bathua (Chenopodium album) leaves in diet provides dietary elements and antioxidants, still their nutritional exploitation is hindered due to the presence of anti-nutritional factors like oxalate and saponin. The bathua leaves were subjected to 1, 2 and 3 min blanching and its methanol and aqueous extracts were analysed for the presence of several anti-nutritional factors such as oxalate and saponin. The oxalate and saponin content were decreased by 27.62% and 68.52% respectively with increase in blanching time from 0 to 3 min.
