A rapid colorimetric procedure is described for determination of phytate based on the reaction between ferric ion and sulfosalicylic acid. Determination of the phytate content of a variety of cereals, legumes, and oilseeds demonstrates the simplicity of this method compared to the cumbersome digestion and colorimetric method for measuring liberated phosphorus.
