Abstract

Samples of 5 dehusked, defatted pulses: (i) Bengal gram (Cicer arietinum), (ii) black gram (Phaseolus mungo), (iii) green gram (Phaseolus aureus), (iv) red gram (Cajanus cajan) and (v) lentils (Lens esculenta) were acid hydrolysed and analysed for amino acid content by qualitative, and for the essential amino acids, by quantitative paper chromatography. Tryptophan was estimated in unhydrolysed samples by a colorimetric procedure. The essential amino acid contents were: (i) 35.5, (ii) 40.6, (iii) 37.0, (iv) 39.1 and (v) 39.3 and the protein scores were: (i) 32, (ii) 39, (iii) 32, (iv) 26 and (v) 19 respectively. Tryptophan followed by the sulphur amino acids were in greatest deficiency.
