The protein quality (PER) of weaning foods, based on flour, hydrogenated groundnut oil and sugar, was unaffected by roller-drying, but when malt extract replaced the sugar there was a marked reduction in the PER of the dried product (1.98 vs. 2.35 in the raw blend). Marked reductions in available lysine occurred in both types of roller-dried weaning foods. Lysine was shown to be the limiting amino acid in a commercial sample of malted milk powder. In rat tests, plasma threonine levels were found to give a better indication of lysine damage in the weaning foods than available lysine or plasma lysine levels.
