The carbohydrate composition of winged bean has been studied, The seeds contain about 42.2% total carbohydrates of which starch alone accounts for 36.2%. The total monosaccharides constituted 2.7% and were identified as glucose (1.17%) and fructose (1.5%); oligosaccharides amounted to only 0.61% and were identified as sucrose, raffinose, stachyose, and verbascose, on a dry defatted basis. The cold water soluble gum of winged bean contains glucose and xylose as the major sugars together with a small amount of arabinose while hot water soluble gum was found to be a glucantype polymer. Hemicellulose A consisted of glucose, xylose, and arabinose (15.5:9:1) whereas hemicellulose B consisted exclusivelyo f glucosein dicatingt hat it is alsoa glucan-typep olymer.
