Abstract

The limiting amino acids of Bengal gram (Cicer arietinum) were determined from plasma amino acid score and ratio and growth response of weanling rats to supplements of amino acids. Methionine, threonine and tryptophan were the most limiting. Protein efficiency ratio of raw and cooked Bengal gram given at 10% protein increased from 2.7 to 3.7 and 2.4 to 3.4, respectively, on supplementing the diets with methionine, threonine and tryptophan. Plasma contents of lysine, methionine, threonine and tryptophan were similar in rats given raw or cooked Bengal gram, indicating that trypsin inhibitor or others which may be present in the raw gram do not affect the biological availability of those amino acids.
