Duong, Q.H., K.G. Lapsley, R.B. Pegg, 2018. Inositol phosphates: health implications, methods of analysis, and occurrence in plant foods. J. Food Bioact. 1:41-55. Inositol phosphates (InsPs), especially myo-inositol hexakisphosphate (InsP6), are important binders of phosphorus and minerals in plant seeds. However, they have long been considered as anti-nutritional components of plant foods due to their possible negative effects on the absorption of minerals and proteins in mammals. On the other hand, recent findings have
