Abstract

Kaffir corn (Sorghum vulgare) and pearl millet (Pennesetum typhoideum) are consumed as the staple food by the low income groups of the population in certain parts of India and other developing countries 1>2 They form the main source of proteins in their diets. 2 Studies carried out by different workers have shown that the proteins of these two millets are partially deficient in lysine and threonine and possess a medium protein efficiency ratio. Recent investigations have indicated that it is possible to improve the nutritive value of cereal proteins by fortification with the limiting amino acids.4 The present paper deals with studies on the effect of supplementation with I-lysine and dl-threonine on the nutritive value of the proteins of kaffir corn and pearl millet and of poor Indian diets based on them.
