The Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata) is one of several species of the widely cultivated genus Vigna. Four cultivated subspecies are recognized:• Vigna unguiculata subsp. cylindrica Catjang• Vigna unguiculata subsp. dekindtiana• Vigna unguiculata subsp. sesquipeda/is Yardlong bean• Vigna unguiculata subsp. unguiculata Black-eyed pea, Roasted beans was studied for its proximate composition. The nutrition related parameters studied were moisture, ash, crude protein, Crude lipid, crude fiber, crude fat, total carbohydrates, Protein content was 18.24%,Crude fat was 1.90%, crude fiber (0.4%), ash (0.40%), carbohydrates by estimation was 77.36%., moisture content (1.70%) and lipid (1.90%). The research results can be used for investigators and food companies for the recipe development of bean processed foods, including fortified products. Keywords: Proximate composition, Roasted  beans. ...
