The determination of the protein quality of opaque-2, floury-2, floury-2 opaque-2 and high-protein opaque-2 maize



The determination of the protein quality of opaque-2, floury-2, floury-2 opaque-2 and high-protein opaque-2 maize



Dissertation Absts. (B). 28: 4421B-4422B



In 9 trials rats were given diets of one of 4 mutant maizes, all with more lysine than normal maize. Opaque-2 maize was as digestible as normal maize but allowed rats to gain 3.6 times more weight; it was as good as the same amount of protein given in soya bean meal.
