 ABSTRACT

This research was undertaken to determine consumption preference between plant protein and animal protein sources by households in Nigeria, using Ekiti state as a case study and the variables that influenced the households' consumption preference between the two. The study methodology comprised a two stage sampling technique, which was used to survey 100 protein-consuming households across localities within the Ekiti State Agricultural Development Project Zones. Analytical tools used in the study include descriptive statistics and the multinomial logit model. The study revealed that the mea11age of the households' heads was 42years, most (51%) of the

households' heads are males, of which about 69% are married. Majority of the households' heads were Traders and mean monthly income ofN55, 265.00. The mean per capita expenditure (N7649.50) on animal protein source food (APSF) is greater than the per capita expenditures (N3667.00) on plant protein source food (PPSF). The major factors that significantly influenced household preferences for combination of plant a11danimal protein sources were age, number of years spent in school, household size and number of income earners in the household while gender, number of years spent in school and number of income earners significantly influenced the household

preference for animal protein only.

Keywords: Malnutrition, Proteins, Consumption, Consumer choices, Multinomial logit model.
