The Antinutritional Components of Grains

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapport/proceedingBidrag til bog/antologiForskningpeer review

Grains provide humans and farmed animals with a very large proportion of the energy and macro- and micronutrients they need. Unfortunately, grains also contain compounds that interfere with the utilization of the nutrients by animals. These so-called antinutritionals may result in poor resource utilization, increased costs in meat production, and even malnourishment in humans. The major antinutritionals are phytate, proteinaceous inhibitors of digestive enzymes, tannins, and nonstarch polysaccharides. For each compound, countermeasures are available in the diverse fields of plant breeding, biotechnology, and food chemistry.
