Peptide mixtures with high and low Fischer's ratios (i.e., the ratio of branched-chain amino acids to aromatic amino acids), obtained from an enzymatic hydrolysate of casein, and the corresponding amino acid mixtures were intragastrically force-fed to rats. Cerebral cortex monoamines were more influenced by the ingestion of the peptide than that of the amino acid mixture.
