Antinutrients

About

Grains, legumes, nuts and seeds (GNSL) contain Antinutrients

What are antinutrients? - substances in natural food generated by the normal metabolism of species and by mechanisms such as inactivation of nutrients or reduction in the digestive process. Whether a substance is an antinutrient depends on the digestive system of its ingester. E.g. ruminants can digest trypsin inhibitors without adverse consequences, humans cannot.

Antinutrients are nature's way of protecting seeds against insects, mold and fungus, and maintaining seed freshness until conditions are right for them to germinate and grow –GNSLs should be properly prepared to reduce the following anti-nutrients:

✔ Phytate“Malabsorption Agent”

✔ Enzyme inhibitors –in most beans, especially protease inhibitors such as trypsin and chymotrypsin inhibitors, which inhibit GI tract proteolytic enzymes and thus affect protein metabolism; induces pancreatic hyperactivity

✔ Lectins –in legumes and certain oil seeds, including soybean

✔ Gluten

✔ Goitrogens – E.g. in soybeans, groundnuts; cause thyroid gland enlargement

✔ Tannins

✔ Oxylates

✔ Alkylrecorcinols

✔ Complex sugars – indigestible by human metabolism

Grains also inherently contain mycotoxins:

–   Produced by fungus during growth –prevalentin corn and wheat,and also present in barley, sorghum, peanuts, rye, and cottonseed.

–   Immunosuppressive

–   Neurotoxic –can damage brain and nerves, causing neurological dysfunction, such as in M.S., Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and Lou Gehrig's disease.

Antinutrients can Cause Health Problems if not properly prepared

Improperly preparedwhole grains, seeds, nuts, legumes, and fractionated grain products(E.g. bran, wheat germ, naked starch) cause GI tract problems -E.g. irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn's disease, colitis, colon cancer, mental disorders associated with celiac disease and many other health problems, due to their containing anti-nutrients:

If consumed in quantity on a regular basis, phytates and other anti-nutrients must be removed or reduced in foods containing them

Most marketed grains, nuts, seeds and legumes or products containing them are not properly prepared and are unfit for regular consumption.
