Abstract This study compares 2 methods for determining nitrogen and protein in various types of infant food: the Kjeldahl method, developed in 1883, which is time consuming and labor intensive, and a newer, automatic method, based on the Dumas method. In each category of infant food considered, the results obtained from both methods are shown to be comparable; however, the modified Dumas method is quicker, easier, and does not pollute the laboratory environment.
