One additional one needed by growing children is histidine. 22 Food Science Early experiments on protein quality were carried out with purified proteins. On the basis of these experiments, proteins were classified as complete, partially complete and incomplete proteins depending on their ability to maintain life and promote growth. Thus, animal proteins from milk, eggs and meat were all included in the list of complete proteins. Gliadin, one of the proteins from wheat was found able to maintain life, but lacked sufficient amounts of some amino acids necessary for growth.

These radioisotopes, when distributed by air currents, found their way into plants and animals and hence into the food. Isotopes of the same element have the same number of electrons and therefore enter into chemical reactions in the body, which are harmful to the body. There are instrumental methods to measure the isotope concentration. Hence radioactive isotopes have been used in research to study the pathways of biological reactions in the body. Thus, utilization and metabolism of nutrients in the body has been studied by feeding isotopically labelled nutrients to animals.

In olden days, sailors to whom fresh fruits and vegetables were not available for many days during long voyages at sea, developed this disease. Ascorbic acid performs a number of important functions in the body. It is a part of the cementing material which holds body cells in place. It helps the body to build resistance to infection. It also helps in the absorption of calcium and iron. Ascorbic acid is a labile nutrient. It is readily soluble in water and is easily oxidized. Losses can occur due to solution, oxidation and destruction on heating.
