Abstract

The protein quality of the alga Spirulina platensis was evaluated in rats by serum protein regeneration. Rats depleted for 12 days were repleted for 15 days with diets containing 10% protein derived from algae, methionine-supplemented algae, or casein. On protein depletion, the activity of the hepatic enzymes, succinic dehydrogenase and alanine aminotransferase, decreased while alkaline phosphatase increased. Protein repletion with algal and casein diets increased activity of succinic dehydrogenase and alanine amino transferase and decreased alkaline phosphatase. Enzymes values were lower with the algal than with the casein diets. Algal diets regenerated serum protein effectively though slightly less than did casein.
