A semi-synthetic diet capable of sustaining good growth in young baboons and containing casein as the only protein source, is proposed. Growth rate data and problems encountered, such as soft stools and hair loss, are discussed. The main shortcomings of the diet are its lack of bulk (fibre) and the amount of time and effort which its preparation requires.
