Extract: Protein efficiency ratio of wheat proteins at 10 percent level was 1.66 and that of Bengal gram proteins at the same level was 2.05. Supplementation of wheat with Bengal gram to the extent of 12 percent increased the growth rate of rats as well as PER significantly. Of the various blends of wheat and Bengal gram tests, 60:40 protein ratio was found to give the highest PER of 2.5. No supplementary effect was observed when rice protein was supplemented with red gram or black gram. Increases in the proportion of protein contributed by black gram in a rice diet lowered the liver fat content
