The goal of this project is to investigate the twelve isoflavones, trans fatty acid, phytic acid and trypsin inhibitors in high oleic acid soybean lines developed in Arkansas, and identify lines high and low in isoflavones, trans fatty acid, phytic acid and trypsin inhibitors. The specific objectives are to: • Investigate the high oleic and low linolenic acid soybean lines developed and identified by Dr. Chen for twelve isoflavones, and trans fatty acid contents; • Identify lines that are rich and low in phytic acid and trypsin inhibitors; and • Provide information to the breeder and growers in selecting lines for various targeted end uses. The findings of this research will give valuable information to the grower in selecting lines for targeted specific end uses and help in enhanced soybean production.
