In this work we calculate the low-energy effective action for gravity with torsion, obtained after the integration of scalar and fermionic matter fields, using the local momentum representation based on the Riemann normal coordinates expansion. By considering this expansion around different spacetime points,ve also compute the non-local terms together with the more usual divergent ones. Finally, we discuss the applicability of our results to the calculation of particle production probabilities.
