Abstract: SUMMARY Raw and lime‐treated corn and raw and cooked beans were analyzed for nutrient content including essential amino acids. No major treatment changes were found. Eight different corn and bean combinations were tested isoproteically and isocalorically in both growing and protein‐depleted adult rats. Corn protein alone gave better results than bean protein. Replacement of part of the lime‐treated corn protein by cooked‐bean protein improved growth up to the point where each dietary component contributed 50% … Show more

“…The results obtained with both cottonseed and soybean flour and Opaque-2 corn can be used to formulate vegetable mixtures of high protein quality, particularly with soybean protein concentrate. The results from the studies in which Opaque-2 corn and black bean protein were combined in different proportions are similar to those reported previously for common corn and black beans (Bressani et al, 1962) and are of practical interest. According to nutrition surveys carried out by INCAP, people living in Central America consume more corn than beans, owing to dietetic habits and economic reasons.…”

“…Mixtures of maize with various legumes have been particularly studied because of their importance in human feeding in Central America. Bressani and his co-workers have evaluated such mixtures using the PER test (Bressani & Valiente, 1962;Bressani, Valiente & Tejada, 1962) and De Groot & Van Stratum (1963) used both PER and NPU tests to study similar mixtures. Some mixtures of protein concentrates have also been tested, including SB-cottonseed meal, and sesame-cottonseed meal (Bressani & BChar, 1964).…”

“…The diet of these populations is often monotonous, thus enabling one to: (i) establish methodological criteria for studying the nutritive value of the most frequently consumed basic foods; (ii) set realistic dietary goals within the proposed models of nutrition education, based on the nutritive value of these foods; (iii) learn the potential of adding supplements to daily meals. Figure 1 shows the change in amino-acid score in a diet of corn and beans when the proportion of beans is increased, following the classic design of Bressani et al (6). The communities have been plotted along this curve according to the proportion of their protein intake from corn and beans.…”
