Studies on amino acid and functional properties of leaf protein concentrate based weaning food
Author(s): Meda RN, Kshirsagar RB, Sawate AR and Patil BM
Leaf protein concentrate (LPC) was extracted from the leaves of Amaranths hybridus, Moringa oleifera and Leucaena leucocephala and was mixed at the proportion of 1:1:1. Then LPC mix was mixed with weaning food prepared. 2 per cent LPC was added to the prepared weaning food sample. The prepared sample was assessed for amino acid and functional properties. The prepared sample had 16-17 percent protein. Protein is a food component that has functional properties that affect the properties of food products. Thus, this research was aimed to study amino acid profile and functional properties of the prepared weaning food sample to determine the quality of the weaning food.
