Treatment of groundnut protein dispersion with hydrogen peroxide to destroy aflatoxin impaired the protein quality of isolated protein. The NPU and PER values of the treated isolate were significantly lower than those of the untreated isolate. Supplementation of the HzOZ-treated protein isolates with lysine, methionine, and threonine promoted growth in rats comparable with that of the untreated protein fed at 10% level. Similar growth response was obtained when the HzOz-treated protein isolate was fed at 20% level in the diet without any amino acid supplementation; however, the efficiency of protein utilization was lowered.
