New Protein Foods, Volume 4: Animal Protein Supplies, Part B covers the realities of the world food problems, with special emphasis on protein supply.
The book discusses the upper limits of livestock production; the government policy and the production of animal protein; and the nutritional and metabolic impact of variable protein intake in human. The text also describes the developments in pork production; issues in poultry production; as well as the use of small ruminants as food producers. The role of lysine and methionine fortification in animal and human nutrition is also considered. The book further tackles the use of microorganisms as feed and food protein; noncompetitive sources of carbohydrates for animal feeding; and recycling of animal wastes by feeding. The text concludes by discussing issues of affluent society malnutrition as the counterpart to the problems of scarcity.
Nutritionists, agriculturists, economists, and people involved in public health and animal research will find the book invaluable.
