This piece of work is done to determine the effect of cooking on the protein in foods, that is, to see if there is any loss of the percent of protein in foods upon cooking, Bogert (3) points out that proteins are coagulated by heat and if the temperature is very high for any length of time the coagulated protein becomes tough and leather-like. Heat also tends to dry protein foods out and cause them to become relatively hard and difficult to digest. We know that certain extractives, which are responsible for the flavor of meats and other protein foods, are absorbed by water when cooked. Other changes that occur are not known as yet and it is the author's purpose to determine them if there are any. The percent of protein found in some foods is shown on the following page. This, however, is for the food in the raw state.
