Abstract

Plant foods are an important part of both human and animal diets, but there is much that we still do not understand about them. They provide protein, carbohydrates, fibre, vitamins, minerals, various antioxidants and phytochemicals. Yet those same healthy foods contain components such as phytate, oxalate and tannins which have been called anti-nutritional elements.
