The present investigation on “Assessing the Nutritional and antinutritional componants of promising kabuli chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) genotypes” was carried out with an objective to analyze different 20 promising genotypes of kabuli chickpea for various nutritional and anti-nutritional components. The highest protein content (25.37%) and phytic acid (12.29 mg g-1) were recorded in kabuli chickpea genotype GJGK-1828. The highest value of total sugar content was observed in ICCV-191310 (4.73%) and maximum ash content was found in ICCV-191302 (3.47%). The minimum phytic acid was recorded in genotype ICCV-191301(10.43 mg g-1) which found distant genotypes in dendrogram prepared using biochemical data. The higher trypsin inhibitor was recorded in kabuli chickpea genotype GJGK-1826 (10.33TIU/mg) and lowest trypsin inhibitor content noticed in genotype ICCV-191302 (14.33TIU/mg) and both were fall in different cluster of dendrogram. Minimum value of total phenol was found in ICCV-181314(87.87 mg 100 g-1) and maximum value was observed in kabuli chickpea genotype GKGK-1826 (93.98 mg 100 g-1). Thus, the wide variability of nutritional and antinutritional parameters was observed among the genotype studied.
