Samples of mutton, goat meat, beef and pork were dehydrated and defatted using acetone. After vacuum drying the material was powdered and hydrolysed with 6N HCl in a vacuum sealed tube at 121 degree C for 18h. After cooling the hydrolysate was adjusted to pH 6.8, filtered, diluted and microbiologically assayed for amino acids using Leuconostoc mesenteroides P-60, Lactobacillus arabinosis 17/5 and Streptococcus faecalis-R as test organisms. Results are tabulated Chemical scores individual amino acids, protein socres and sequence of limiting amino acids are presented for all the meats. Goat meat has a similar amino acid pattern to mutton but contains more arginine (7.4 g/16 g N), leucine (8.4 g) and isoleucine (5.1 g) than mutton which contains 6.6. 7.6 and 4.6 g respectively. Results show that goat meat is adequate in respect of all the essential amino acids and has a protein score of 84 compared with 84 for mutton, 89 for beef and 90 for pork.
