Abstract:

Horsegram (Macrotyloma uniflorum (Lam) Verdc.) is minor legume, which belongs to family Fabaceace. It is a potential grain legume having excellent nutritional quality with better resilience property to adapt harsh environment conditions. Seven released varieties and five advanced breeding lines of horsegram were procured from All India Coordinated Research Project – Dryland Agriculture, Vijayapur. The horsegram were assessed for crude protein, in vitro protein digestibility, antioxidant activity and total polyphenols content. There was no significant difference among the varieties for crude protein, whereas in vitro protein digestibility, antioxidant activity and total polyphenol content varied significantly (p ≤ 0.01) among the varieties. The protein content, in vitro protein digestibility, antioxidant activity and total polyphenols content ranged from 23.10-28.21 g/100 g, 50.80-67.80 per cent, 80.24-89.41 per cent DPPH and 2.35-3.61 mgGAE/g respectively.
