Cite article:- Li Jing, Luo* Yu-Wei (2016). Soluble sugars and myo-inositol phosphates during germination andseedling growth of green and white faba bean (Vicia faba L.) . Legume Research. 40(1): 47-54. doi: 10.18805/lr.v0iOF.11310.

The soluble sugar and myo-inositol phosphates in the cotyledons and embryo axis during germination and seedling growth of green and white faba beans, were studied  with an objective to analyze the precise distribution of these compounds in the different parts of faba bean seeds. In green and white faba beans the raffinose family oligosaccharides (RFO) for establishing their nutritional relevance, were estimated mainly in the cotyledons which were drastically reduced within 2 days after imbibition (DAI). During germination and seedling growth phytates content was reduced in cotyledon (20–23%) and embryo axis (83–90%).
