Abstract

For 28 days groups of 8 weanling female rats 23 days old weighing 35 to 47 g and groups of 7 adult female rats weighing 200 to 250 g were given diets which contained egg protein 0.5 to 4.0% or sesame or soya bean protein 1 to 10%. Protein requirements for the maintenance of bodyweight in the young and adult rats were, respectively, for egg protein 2.2 and 2.3%, for sesame protein 4.5 and 4.6% and for soya bean protein 3.3 and 3.7%. Net dietary protein calculated from net protein utilization values was 2.2 and 2.3, 2.7 and 2.8, and 2.4 and 2.8%.
