Eat Soybeans to Prevent Diseases

Postby wolfhnd on September 29th, 2009, 8:09 pm 

Soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] is an important source of tocopherols which have health-beneficial properties. A study was conducted to determine tocopherols concentration and stability in early maturing soybean genotypes and to determine their relationships to other important seed characteristics. Twenty soybean genotypes were grown in replicated trials in six environments of eastern Canada, and their total-, {alpha}-, {gamma}-, and {delta}-tocopherol concentrations were determined by high-performance liquid chromatography. Seed yield, 100-seed weight, and crude protein and oil concentrations were concurrently determined. Genotype and environment main effects and G x E interactions were observed for all tocopherols ... 101/5/1153
