Amino acid scores will indicate which are the limiting amino acids, and experimental evidence in rats will be presented to confirm such indications. The remainder of the article will review the results of clinical studies on the protein quality of high-quality protein maize with young and adult human subjectsCollection: AGRIS Collection
