Abstract

Weanlin~ albino rats gained weight in increasing order with increasing leveis of protein in diets; the optimum feed and protein efflciencies were at 15% protein level. Methionine caused significant Improvements in growth of rats and also with respect to feed and protein efficiencies at all protein levels, indicating it to be the most limiting amino acid. Methionine supplementation showed best responses at 10% protein level. Ly_ sine, when added either singly or in combination with methionine, did not show any hnprovements suggesting its nutritional adequacy in leaf protein.
