1. The winged bean ( Psophocarpus palustris Desv. ) has been grown successfully for several seasons, on an experimental basis, in the forest belt of Ghana, where earlier attempts to grow the soya bean had proved unsatisfactory. 2. Although botanically different, the composition of the dry seeds was found to be very similar to that of the soya bean, containing 37·3% protein, 18·1% fat, 13·9 ppm thiamin and 1·8 ppm riboflavin. The oil of the seeds contained 125·9 mg tocopherol (γ + β) per 100 g… Expand
Chemical composition of winged bean (Psophocarpus tetragonolobus) varieties.
TLDR
The chemical composition of dry seeds of four varieties, pods, stalks and leaves of winged beans (Psophocarpus tetragonolobus) was determined, and chymotrypsin inhibitory activity was higher than the trypsin. Expand
Composition and protein quality of winged bean (Psophocarpus tetragonolobus)
The chemical composition and the protein quality of the winged bean seeds (Psophocarpus tetragonolobus L.DC.), which have increasing importance in tropical regions as a protein and energy-rich foodExpand
The winged bean (Psophocarpus palustris Desv.) in the treatment of kwashiorkor.
TLDR
The high nutritive value and the pleasant, sweet taste, even in the raw state, are the main advantages of the winged bean that should outweigh the disadvantage that its skin is tough and more difficult to remove than that of the soya bean. Expand
Proximate analysis of five varieties of winged beans, Psophocarpus tetragonolobus (L.) DC*
TLDR
The results showed that the varieties analyzed had a high protein and fat content, which was similar to soybeans, and whole beans as received contain about 14%‘dietary fibre’ measured as neutral detergent fibre. Expand
Lipid composition of winged bean (Psophocarpus tetragonolobus).
TLDR
Compared to soybean oil, winged bean oil contained long chain fatty acids and a fairly small amount of linolenic acid which is favorable regarding oil stability against autoxidation and should be suitable for edible purposes. Expand
The Nutritional Value of Autoclaved and Ammonia Treated Winged Beans [Psophocarpus tetragonolobus (L.) Dc.] for Japanese Quail.
Abstract Winged beans (Psophocarpus tetragonolobus) contained 6.25% moisture, 35% crude protein, 19.13% lipid, and 4.45% ash. The amino acid profile was determined and methionine was found to be theExpand
The protein, trypsin inhibitor and lipid of the winged bean [Psophocarpus tetragonolobus (L) DC] seeds
TLDR
The protein, trypsin inhibitor and lipid of the seeds from 15 New Guinea and 15 Thai winged bean varieties grown in Malaysia were analysed and showed thatWinged bean seeds have a high protein content and oleic and linoleic acids together constitute 57–64% of the unsaturated fatty acids. Expand
THE PROXIMATE COMPOSITION AND NUTRITIVE VALUE OF THE WINGED BEAN PSOPHOCARPUS TETRAGONOLOBUS (L.) DC FOR BROILERS
TLDR
The farm processed bean was given to broilers in partial or complete replacement of either soya bean meal (SBM) or groundnut cake (GNC) in order to determine its nutritive value, and it is suggested that WBM can effectively replace SBM or GNC in broiler diets. Expand
Investigations on Winged Bean [Psophocarpus tetragonolobus (L.) DC] Proteins and Antinutritional Factors
Two cultivars of winged bean (Chimbu and HF-10) were investigated. The molecular weight distribution profiles of two cultivars differed significantly. Major protein subunits of Chimbu had estimatedExpand
Physicochemical analysis of Psophocarpus tetragonolobus (L.) DC seeds with fatty acids and total lipids compositions
TLDR
The study revealed that, fatty oil from fully mature seeds contained high proportion of unsaturated fatty acids, whereas immature seeds contained higher percentage of saturated fatty acid, thus meeting the edible oil standard. Expand

All‐Vegetable Protein Mixtures for Human Feeding. The Development of INCAP Vegetable Mixture 14 Based on Soybean Flour
TLDR
The addition of lysine and threonine in the presence of methionine caused a highly significant increase in protein efficiency ratio and only a small response was obtained when milk protein replaced Formula 14 protein in isoproteic diets. Expand
The determination of the net utilization of proteins by a shortened method.
TLDR
A method is described, whereby seven proteins can be tested simultaneously in 10 days, using thirty-two rats and involving no N estimations other than on the food, based on the formula already discussed. Expand

A simple method for the isolation and purification of total lipides from animal tissues.
TLDR
A simplified version of the method for the preparation and purification of brain lipides has the advantage of being simpler, of being applicable to any scale desired, of substantially decreasing the losses of lipides incidental to the washing process, and of yielding a washed extract which can be taken to dryness without foaming and without splitting of the proteolipides.

CHOLINE IN THE NUTRITION OF CHICKS
TLDR
In continuing the studies in this laboratory on new factors required by growing chicks, the authors have encountered a severe choline deficiency and chicks upon their basal ration show inferior growth and severe perosis which are entirely prevented by the addition of 0.1 per cent choline to the diet.

THE CALIBRATION OF DIFFUSION MEMBRANES AND THE CALCULATION OF MOLECULAR VOLUMES FROM DIFFUSION COEFFICIENTS
TLDR
The calibration of diffusion membranes with sodium chloride, potassium chloride, and hydrochloric acid is described and the evidence that the membrane method yields correct diffusion coefficients is summarized, which indicates that the method can be applied to impure biological substances which can be estimated only by activity measurements.
