Lysine Fortification of Commercial Bulgur.

This study was the result of the production of several million pounds of lysine-fortified bulgur. A colorimetric method using ninhydrin as the reactant was used as a quality control method for determination of L-lysine monohydrochloride. Variation of interlaboratory results indicated the method was not adequate at the desired level (0.10%) of fortification. Growth studies indicated an increase in protein efficiency ratio when rats received bulgur fortified with lysine. Analytical and biological evaluations also indicated losses of lysine up to 65% when added before cooking.
