The faba bean is a legume primarily used in animal feeding as grain and, to a lesser degree, as fodder. As noted, grain, being a good source of amylacea (starch) (45–50% DM) and protein (23–30 CP%DM) of discrete biological value (Verite and Peyraud, 1988), acts as an alternative to soybean which is particularly suitable for organic breeding. Despite this, low productive yields and the presence of thermostable antinutritional factors have reduced the diffusion of this legume especially in feeding non-ruminant species. The objective of the current work was that of investigating the effect of the genotype and conditions (time and place of sowing) on the amount in polyphenols, vicine, convicine and phytates of five varieties of faba bean (Vicia faba var. minor) that have recorded the best protein yields under Umbrian pedoclimatic conditions (Monotti et al., 2004; Mannino, 2003).
