Extraction with 70% ethanol of chick pea, cow pea and horse gram yielded 7.1,g.l and 3.6%, respectively of free sugars, all showing the presence of galactose, glucose, sucrose, raffinose, stachyose and verbascose in varying proportions. Starch was isolated in 28 -37% yields; whereas the unavailable carbohydrates were found to be 17.6, 14.5 and 24.2% respectively. All the fractions contained uronic acid, pentoses and hexoses in different proportions. No ethanol-soluble sugar or starch was detectable in the husk. The husk was rich in cellulose which still contained small amounts ofpentoseconstituents, indicating probably its incomplete extraction or a strong macromolecular association.
