Author(s): Dr. Sweta Vyas
Malnutrition is a problem of great concerned to developing countries like India. The nutritional scientists and food technologists are facing a new challenge to explore other sources of proteins which can overcome the barrier of good quality nutrients. The present study was conducted on 20 normal healthy vegetarian subjects by feeding them diet containing cenchrus–catharticus (bhurat) a grass seed protein for 15 days. Their blood samples were analysed for blood parameters such as total protien, serum albumin and globulin before and after intake of cenchrus-catharticus (bhurat) flour diet. It was found that total serum proteins, albumin and globulin were increased after intake of cenchrus-catharticus (bhurat) diet. It might be due to presence of essential amino acids such as lysine along with total protein contents. It can be said that cenchrus-catharticus (bhurat) seeds have good quality of protein and have great nutritional potential.
