Protein concentrates were prepared from fenugreek seeds by extraction with distilled water, salt solution and alkaline solution. Alkaline solution resulted in the highest extraction yield (82%). The protein concentrate has a good digestibility (over 90%) as determined by in vitro enzymatic method. The protein is rich in lysine (6.51%) but poor in sulphur‐containing amino acids such as methionine (0.71%), cystine (1.09%) and tryptophan (1.03%).
