Abstract Treatment of selected dietary proteins (i.e. casein, soy protein, gluten, zein and tomato foliar protein) with chlorogenic acid and polyphenol oxidase significantly reduced protein quality to Spodoptera exigua larvae as measured by larval growth rate. The reduction in growth was negatively correlatable with the content of lysine, histidine, cystein and methionine for each protein. These amino acids contain nucleophilic centres (e.g. -SH, -NH2) that are susceptible to alkylation by… Expand
