Sword bean variants and different pretreatments influence protein extraction and protein properties

Two variants of the sword bean (Canavalia gladiata), namely the white sword bean (WSB) and the red sword bean (RSB), are known. The MgCl2 concentration-dependent canavalin solubility showed different behavior among the extracts from distinct beans prepared by distinct pretreatments. Pretreatment and bean selection are important factors for use in food chemical and biochemical experiments.
