Seven pure varieties of oats grown under similar environmental conditions at Grayslake, Ill., offered an opportunity for comparative studies on protein quality. Samples of oat groats ranging in protein content from 18.1 to 22.2% had highly significant differences in lysine, glutamic acid, and glycine content. The content of the other amino acids detected was uniform in all samples. Rat growth data did not reveal any significant differences in nutritive value of the varieties used.
