Abstract

For 6 weeks 40 weanling rats were given a diet with casein 18, groundnut oil 10, minerals 2 and vitamins 1% with 69% maize starch or the carbohydrate fractions of the same legumes as in the preceding abst. There was no difference in weight gain, protein efficiency ratio or percentage of nitrogen retained among the diets but apparent digestibility of protein of diets with legume carbohydrates was 85.2 to 89.6% compared with 94.1% for the diet with maize starch. Serum cholesterol of rats given legume carbohydrates was 72.2 to 84.7 and of those given maize starch 99.4 mg/100 ml.
