Total protein (Kjeldahl) and fat contents were determined in 24 pre-prepared foods as served in a hospital food service line. Amino acid content and protein quality were estimated for eight entree foods. Entree foods were 11 to 36% protein and provided 22 to 54% of an adult man's RDA for protein as served. Fat content of entree foods ranged from 1.5 to 18.6%. Other pre-prepared foods (vegetables, salads, fruit gelatins, and desserts) contained 0.4 to 3.3% protein and 0.1 and 3.9% fat. The Food and Nutrition Board's recommendations for sulfur amino acids were fulfilled by all entree foods as served except "low-calorie, low-sodium" meatballs, cheese omelette, and Swedish meatballs. Only "low-sodium" and regular roast beef and "low-calorie" beef-with-noodles met amino-acid requirements for nitrogen balance for older men. Protein quality for all entree foods compared favorably with that of - casein.
