Abstract

The PER of a poor ~ice diet (PRO) increased only slightly by supplement9tion With lysine or threonine but addition of methionine increased the PER to a significant extent from 2.52 to 2.97. Addition of a mixture of lysine + methionine, lysine +'threonine. and me thionine + threonine brought, about highly slgnitlcantlncreases 1n the PER to 3.22, 3.46 and 3.13 respectively. Addition of a mixture of the above three limiting amino acids resulted in a further significant increase in the PER to 3.63. The results indicate that methionine is the most limj.ting amino acid in poor rice diet, followed by lysine and threonine
