The aim of this study was to investigate the nutritional and anti nutritional factors of the two local varieties of red gram seeds. The results obtained are presented as mean percentage for moisture contents as 8.92, ash, 3.21, dietary fiber, 6.60, protein, 23.23, Fat, 1.45 and total carbohydrate as 53.23 respectively. The study also elicited the mean manganese content to be 1.76, copper 1.80, iron 5.95 and zinc 3.52 mg/100g of dried sample respectively. The mean content of galactosyl oligosaccharides for the two varieties was found to be 1.42%, for raffinose, 1.75% for stachyose and 4.95% for verbascose respectively. Raffinose family sugars in split dhal and immature seeds were found to be 0.85 and 1.00%, for raffinose, 1.54% and 1.11%, for stachyose and 4.20 and 1.38% for verbascose respectively. The mean content of trypsin inhibitor was 199.40 (TIA)/g sample and chymotrypsin inhibitor was 270 (CIU)/g sample.
