|Protein requirements for young Colombian adults consuming local diets containing primarily animal or vegetable protein|
1. Mean requirement for animal protein was 114 mg N/kg; for vegetable protein it was 128 mg N/kg. (These correspond to 0.71 and 0.80 9 protein, respectively.)
2. With the vegetable protein diet, faecal nitrogen excretion increased as nitrogen intake increased.
