Abstract

The soybean (US) or soya bean (UK) (Glycine max) is a species of legume native to East Asia, widely grown for its edible bean which has numerous uses. The plant is classed as an oil seed rather than a pulse by the UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO). Proximate properties of black and white soybean (with and without seed coat) such as moisture, volatile matter, ash, weight, colour and size were determined. The percentage of volatile matter, ash matter and moisture content in white soybean without seed coat are 7.80%, 5.53% and 6.3± 0.5%. The percentage of volatile matter, ash matter and moisture content in Black soybean without seed coat are 8.620%, 5.12% and 6.2 ± 0.5. The size, weight, moisture and ash matter of white soybean was more than black soybean (with and without seed coat) and white soybean (without seed coat). The volatile matter was highest in black soybean compared with white soybean.
