To meet the protein needs of the newly developing countries and the increasing world population, plant proteins and protein mixtures will be required in larger and larger amounts. The proteins studied in this investigation included an animal and a vegetable protein that are important agricultural products of the United States. While general information about the nutritive quality of these proteins is available, this regional study was designed to contribute to an understanding of the reasons for the quality differences and to provide a basis for formulating protein mixtures of high quality using various protein sources.
