Abstract

Defatted groundnut meal and Bengal gram dhal in the proportion 2:1 were used to prepare miso-like products; rice-koji was used in one preparation (i) and corn-koji in the other (ii). Chemical analysis gave the following values (%) for (i) and (ii) respectively: moisture 7.8, 7.8; total N 4.74, 5.12; protein 29.60, 32.13; ether extract 3.36, 5.21; NaCl 14.26, 15.72; reducing sugars 21.30, 11.93; starch 7.46, 6.90; and acidity as lactic acid 6.75, 5.63. 2 other similar products, not subjected to fermentation, were also prepared for comparison in protein efficiency ratio (PER) studies; these indicated that fermentation caused significant improvements in PER values. The beneficial effect of fermentation in the preparation of miso-like products is due to the degradation of carbohydrates and proteins present in the raw materials. The higher value of PER for fermented products was apparently due to an increase in solubility and degradation of proteins. Supplementation of a poor rice-diet fed to rats with 10% miso-like products resulted in a significant improvement in growth rate.
