Abstract

In an earlier publication from this laboratory, Joseph et al1 reported that undernourished children, subsisting on a poor Indian rice diet maintained on an average, slight positive nitrogen and calcium balances, which were inadequate for promoting optimum growth of the children. Subrahmanyan et al2,3, Joseph et al4 and Tasker et al5 have reported that supplementation of the poor rice diet daily with 2 oz. of Indian multipurpose food or a low-cost protein food (based on blends of groundnut flour, Bengalgram flour and coconut meal, fortified with vitamins and minerals) brought about significant increases in the growth and nutritional status and also in the retention of nitrogen, calcium and phosphorus in children. In the preceding paper, Doraiswamy et al6 have reported that supplementation of the diet of undernourished children daily with 50 g. of groundnut flour fortified with vitamins and minerals for a period of 6 months brought about a marked improvement in their growth and nutritional status. The present paper describes the results of studies on the effect of the groundnut flour supplement on the metabolism of nitrogen, calcium and phosphorus in children.
