Nutrition.

The nutritive value of carbohydrates is discussed under the following headings: the content of carbohydrates in grain legumes utilized in Europe, including the content of carbohydrates in grain legumes used for human nutrition and the content of carbohydrates in grain legumes used for animal nutrition; physiological effect of grain legume carbohydrates in animal nutrition, including consumption of grain legume carbohydrates in feed, effect of mono- and disaccharides in animal nutrition, effect of oligosaccharides in animal nutrition, effect of starch in animal nutrition, effect of non-starch polysaccharides in animal nutrition, and effect of grain legume carbohydrates in ruminant nutrition; physiological effect of grain legume carbohydrates in human nutrition, including nutritional classification of grain legume carbohydrates, consumption of grain legume carbohydrates in food, physiological effect of available carbohydrates from grain legumes and physiological effect of unavailable carbohydrates from grain legumes.
