Abstract

All essential amino acids assayed were found to be present in fruit pulp. Most fruits were adequate for maintenance metabolism; only fruit of Piper amalago was adequate for lactating bats, but when amino acid deficiencies were considered, P. amalgo fruit was adequate only for maintenance metabolism, and no other fruits met this requirement.-from Author
