Nutrients are found in food which gets used by the body to stay healthy and perform its many functions. But on the other hand, there are nutrients found in food, specifically plants, which arenot digested; these are called antinutrients. Unlike nutrients – which the body can absorb – antinutrients work to block this absorption, minimizing the benefits we receive.

Generally, you don’t have to worry too much about antinutrients if you consume a balanced diet. But for those at risk for malnutrition, antinutrients can make the condition far worse. Even individuals who stick with a diet mainly consisting of legumes and grains are at higher risk of the consequences of antinutrients.
