    Author(s): Mayur Patil* and Sanjay Auti

    Grain legumes or pulses are significant sources of proteins and other nutrients for the majority of the population in the world. Wild relatives of grain legumes relatively remain under explored for their nutritive value. With this backdrop, three species of Alysicarpus were analyzed for their protein contents and other nutritional and antinutritional components. Results showed significant content of proteins and carbohydrates whereas lower free amino acids and lipid ranging from 13.80 ± 0.40 to16.05 ± 0.86, 31.86 ± 1.10 to 51.15 ± 0.52, 1.97 ± 0.52 to 4.4 ± 1 and 2.47 ± 0.32 to 8.37 ± 0.35 g/100g respectively. Antinutrients phenols, tannins and Phytic acids were also analyzed and showed a range of 0.57 ± 0.76-0.64 ± 0.28; 0.50 ± 0.40-1.11 ± 0.11 % respectively. Results showed that Alysicarpus species m..
