Phytic Acid Content

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created May 30, 2011 at 10:12 PM

I can't seem to find a list of the phytic acid content in various foods (wheat, barley, quinoa, corn, black beans, red beans, lentils, almonds, walnuts, etc etc etc). I'm basically looking for a list of all the grains, legumes, seeds and nuts and their respective level of phytic acid.

I found one on Wikipedia but I'm looking for a more credible source.

many thanks

Curious: Most chocolate chip cookies are probably around 1/4 mass in chips (and most of it not actually chocolate), so how can a chocolate cookie, which is more dense in flour than a muffin (and maybe similar to Wheaties in ingredients), have so much less?
