Study of the protein fraction of fonio grain, Digitaria exilis (Kippist), Stapf., a protein exceptionally rich in methionine

Study of the protein fraction of fonio grain, Digitaria exilis (Kippist), Stapf., a protein exceptionally rich in methionine

Ann. Nutrit. Alimentation. 14: 165-169

The amino acid composition of fonio, rice and sorghum is tabulated. Total protein in fonio, 8.9 per cent. of dry matter, contained methionine 5-6 and lysine 2.6 per cent. compared with 3.5 and 6.8 per cent. in whole egg; other essential amino acids compared relatively well with those in egg.
