A chronic lack of protein in the diet leads to kwashiorkor. Through the s, they produced and analyzed germplasms at an astonishing rate, sometimes processing up to 25, samples a year. In addition makz can be converted in the body to Niacin, which theoretically reduces the incidence of Pellagra.

Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. The grain of quality protein maize QPM varieties contains nearly twice as much lysine and tryptophanamino acids that are essential for humans and mauz animals.

Moreover, the taste and kernel appearance dissatisfied consumers, who ultimately rejected the enhanced-protein varieties in the market. For their achievement, they won the World Food Prize.


While its lysine and tryptophan levels were better than those of conventional maize, opaque-2 had lower yields and a soft, chalky kernel, which made it more susceptible to ear rot and insect damage. In Central and Mziz AmericaAfricaand Asiaseveral hundred million people rely on maize as their principal daily food, for weaning babies, and for feeding livestock.

The Mayans and Aztecs used to boil maize in the alkaline limewater which broke down the complex so that the Niacin became available. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

Unfortunately maize corn has two significant flaws; it lacks the full range of amino acidsnamely miz and tryptophanneeded to produce proteinsand has its niacin vitamin B 3 bound in an indigestible complex. By the mids, they had produced a QPM germplasm with hard kernel characteristics and good taste similar to the traditional grain and with much higher quality levels of lysine and tryptophan. Kataki; Suresh Chandra Babu These two amino acids allow the body to manufacture complete proteins, thereby eliminating wet-malnutrition.
