Protein-free diet flavored with saccharin or salt was presented to rats following a single intragastric administration of a histidine-devoid, but otherwise balanced, amino acid mixture. A control load was paired with the alternate flavor on another day. When they were subsequently given a choice of flavors, the rats preferred the control flavor to the one paired with the deficient load.
