Abstract

In a previous paper from this laboratory, Subrahmanyan, Murthy & Swaminathan (1954)re ported that replacement of 25 yo of the rice in a poor rice diet by tapioca flour did not affect the overall nutritive value of the diet as judged by the growth of young rats. Though animal experiments may provide useful information on the nutritive value of human diets, the ultimate test must be their effect on human beings. It was, therefore, felt desirable to conduct experiments on adult human beings to find out the effect on the metabolism of nitrogen, calcium and phosphorus of replacement of 25 % of rice in poor rice diets by tapioca flour. The results are reported in this paper.
