Abstract

The plot of chemical score (CS) of sorghum-African yam bean (AYB) food blend against the ratio of the mixture, using the limiting amino acids lysine and sulfur-amino acids (SAAs) gave rise to an intercept which was taken as the point of maximum benefit for the mixture. A double point corresponding to 71.7% sorghum and 28.3% AYB was obtained. This could be taken as the optimum blending ratio for this food mixture. This result agreed closely with animal assay results.
