ABSTRACT
The aim of the study was to estimate sorption degree of selected bile acids (lithocholic acid - LCA and cholic acid - CA) with 1 mmol/L and 6 mmol/L concentration as well as that of cholesterol by legumes. It was shown that bile acids sorption degree depended on the variety of seeds (the highest sorption ability had pea, while lentil showed the lowest one), grinding degree (bile acids were bound better by big particles) and the kind of acid (LCA acid with 6 mmol/L concentration was bound to a greater extent, independently on the variety of seeds and grinding degree). Next, the best binding ability of cholesterol was reported for bean, while the lowest one for soybean. Development of sorption surface of the investigated seeds significantly influenced extension of cholesterol binding ability.
