A series of problems associated with the nutritional quality and acceptability characteristics of Phaseolus vulgaris are discussed. These include water absorption restrictions (hard-shell or hard-seed phenomenon); starch digestibility; flatulence; protein digestibility; overall protein quality; hard-to-cook phenomenon; general composition database; antiphysiological factors; and relationships between consumer acceptability criteria and lab. screening techniques. For each one, a description of the problem is followed by background information, possible approaches to a solution, and special requirements. Key personal contacts are also given. In-depth studies in these areas should be a priority. (CIAT)
