Grains from seven common pulses grown in India were separated into seed coat, cotyledons, endosperm (in guar only), and embryo, and the proportion of each was determined. All fractions and the whole grain of each pulse were analyzed for ash, protein, ether extract, crude fiber, nitrogen-free extract, phosphorus, calcium, and iron contents. Cotyledons, being the major and fairly balanced component, account for almost the entire food value of the whole seed.
