oa Agrochemophysica - Evaluation of a survey method of hydrolysis for the analysis for lysine in maize samples

Volume 10, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0302-7112



Comparisons between the results obtained for the lysine content, expressed as a percentage of the protein content, o f whole grain and maize endosperm samples, analysed using the established �conventional� method of acid hydrolysis and an abbreviated � survey� method, indicated that the survey method did not give reliable values and also that endosperm lysine values could not be reliably predicted from whole grain lysine values. A further study of the effect of evacuation o f the samples prior to hydrolysis revealed that such evacuation was not required for the specific analysis for lysine.
