This review is focuses on the anti-nutritional factors in plant metabolism and how they are beneficial to the plant defense system and harmful or beneficial to humans or animals and also how to reduce their quantity in materials. The anti-nutritional factors can be defined as those substances generated in natural food substances by the normal metabolism of species and by different mechanisms e.g. inactivation of some nutrients, diminution of the digestive process or metabolic utilization of feed, which exert effects contrary to optimum nutrition. Anti-nutritional factors are natural or synthetic compounds that interferes the absorption and metabolism of nutrients. Nutrition studies focus on these antinutrients commonly found in food sources and beverages e.g. polyphenols, oxalic acid, oxalates, glucosinolates, amylase inhibitor, lipase inhibitor, protease inhibitors and phytic acid etc. Plants commonly synthesize a range of secondary metabolites as part of their protection against attack by herbivorous, insects and pathogens or as means to survive in adverse growing conditions (Bora, 2014). Synthetic substances present in nourishment test and which have been accounted for with some level of poisonous quality in humanity incorporate aflatoxin, hemagglutinin and cyanogenic glycosides. Harmfulness is the after effect of the connection between three factors to be specific the kind of living being, a grouping of poison and time of length (Akande, et al. 2010). For instance, in a portion of the nourishments which contain inborn standards, handling strategies have been produced which make them alright for human utilization. Accordingly, this paper is meat to survey antinutritioanl factors and their impact on mineral retention.
