The primary function of dietary protein in humans is to furnish the aminoacids required, for the synthesis of tissue proteins and also of other nitrogenous constituents essential to the organism. A large amount of work has been carried out by various workers on the protein and amino acid requirements of humans. 1,2 The present review deals with the following aspects of the problem: (I) Rate of accretion of protein in the body during growth and calculated minimum protein requirements. (2) The aminoacid requirements and aminoacid patterns (3) Aminoacid composisition of human tissues and animal tissues as compared to estimated amino- acid requirements. (4) Metabolism and retention of dietary protein. (5) Factors affecting the retention of dietary proteins. (6) Dietary protein requirements.
