The linear attenuation coefficient of some commonly available protein rich pulses (ciceraritenium, vigna radiate, phaseolus vulgaris, vigna mungo and canjanus cajan) has been measured by using direct transmission method. It has been found that the pulse: vigna radiate (VR) having more linear attenuation coefficient than others pulses.
