With research on Kesari dal proving beyond doubt that its consumption would result in paralysis, scientists are now exploring the possibility of removing toxicity from the dal at the cultivation stage itself so that it can be safely consumed by common man.
An international conference on ‘Recent trends in Lathyrus Sativus research’ will be organised in the city on November 8-9, 2012 on how to facilitate consumption of Kesari dal, without the toxicity that leads to paralysis. “The benefits of consumption of Kesari dal are plenty. But our experiments had proved that consumption of high quantity of Kesari dal would result in paralysis, but we are not stopping at that,” said Dr Arjun L Khandare, deputy director, Food and Drug Toxicology Research Centre (FDTRC), National Institute of Nutrition (NIN).
