Abstract

In earlier publications,1 3 the results of studies on the preparation, shelf life and nutritive value of a protein food based on 4:4:2 blend of groundnut, Bengal grarh and sesame flours and fortified with essential vitamins and minerals have been reported. The proteins in the food had a higher protein efficiency ratio (2.29) than that (1.7) of the Indian multipurpose food based on 3:1 blend of groundnut and Bengal gram flours.4 The protein food when incorporated to provide 2.5% extra protein in a poor Indian kaffir corn diet made up the deficiencies in the diet and promoted good growth in albino rats. In the present investigation, the effect of supplementing an ill-balanced diet consumed by school children with 53g. of the protein food daily on their growth and nutritional status has been studied.
