Abstract
An experiment was conducted to determine the trypsin inhibitor activity (TIA) and phytohaemagglutin activity (PHA) in row and auto claved four types of common beans (P. Vulgaris); Mwezi Moja, Mexican 142, Rose Coca and Canadian Wonder and two types of peas cow peas (V. unguiculata / sinnensis) and pigeon peas (C. cajanus) grown in Kenya. All the raw grain legumes were found to contain TIA and PHA, with generally higher values of the inhibitors in beans than in the pea types. Although autoclaving completely destroyed the PHA, it was only partially effective against TIA.
