Experiments with Bread Containing Soy Bean Flour
At the order of the minister of war, a commission composed of physicians and chemists attached to the army service and presided over by Professor Memmo, member of the army medical corps, with the rank of general, has completed alimentation tests with bread containing 10 per cent soy bean flour. The experimental subjects were army officials (physicians and pharmacists) and soldiers of the regular army, who volunteered their services. The specimens of flour used for the test were furnished gratuitously by two Italian wholesale houses, and had been milled by different processes. The tests were conducted over a period of several weeks, and the commission recently presented to the minister of war its conclusions, which were most favorable to the adoption by the army of bread containing a percentage of soy bean flour.
