Abstract

In the present work, a cereal-legume diet, prepared by blending wheat flour and Bengal gram (Cicer arietinum) flour in proportions more or less as in normal practice and adjusted to 15 per cent protein with addition of wheat gluten, has been compared with a diet in which fish meal replaced the gluten. There were additional groups on the cereal-legume diet with supplements of folic acid and vitamin B12' with or without cystine. Cystine addition was intended to compensate for the deficiency of sulphur amino acids in the cereal~legume diet; the favourable effect of folic acid on methionine synthesis from dietary cystine under conditions of limited availability of methionine is known.
