Abstract: The chemical composition and the contents of resistant starch and soluble and insoluble dietary fibre of pea (Pisum sativum L.), common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.), chickpea (Cicer aretinum L.) and lentil (Lens culinaris Med.) legumes, were studied. Raw and freeze-dried cooked samples were used, both in the form of flour. Protein values of the legumes ranged from 18.5 to 21.9 g/100 g for the raw grains and from 21.3 to 23.7 g/100 g for freeze-dried cooked legumes. Chickpea stood out for the highest lipid content (p < 0.05), the lowest insoluble fibre values, and soluble dietary fibre not detected. The average content of resistant starch found in the legumes did not differ statistically (p > 0.05), being 2.23 +/- 0.24 g/100 g for freeze-dried cooked legumes, and showing a slight reduction in comparison to the raw form.
