Substantial numbers of individuals in the world are short of both dietary energy and dietary protein. The effective use of proteins and the world food supply are the subject of papers of the NATO Advanced Study Institute (1972). The principal objectives of the meeting were to review existing knowledge of world protein sources in relation to human requirements, to discuss factors affecting protein utilization in the body, to assess critically the usefulness in human nutrition of methods used for the evaluation of protein quality, and to consider the role of the food scientist and technologist in the development and use of new protein foods

Includes bibliographies. Based on the proceedings of a NATO Advanced Study Institute on the chemistry, biology and physics of protein evaluation held in Reading, England, March 20-24, 1972. *US (NAL QP551.P72 F and N)
