Abstract

The supplementary value of a spraydried infant food (based on peanut protein isolate,. full-fat soy flour, dextrimaltose, and hydrogenated peanut oil and fortified with DL-methionine and certain vitamins and minerals) to a maize-tapioca diet was studied by growth experiments on albino rats. When incorporated at the 20% level (providing about 5% extra protein), the food was as effective as an equivalent amount of milk food in promoting growth. No ,significant differences were observed in the mean protein contents of carcasses or livers of 'rats receiving the fortified infant food or milk food. The livers of animals receiving the maize-tapioca diet showed a moderate degree of parenchymal damage of the protein deficiency type and severe periportal fatty infiltration. In contrast, the livers of rats receiving the supplement of infant food and milk ,supplement were normal, indicating that both supplements were effective in correcting the protein deficiency in the maizetapioca diet and in preventing liver damage.
