Abstract

In previous publications of this series (Subrahmanyan, Murthy & Swaminathan, 1954; Murthy, Swaminathan & Subrahmanyan, 1954) we reported that: (I) replacement of 25 % of 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, and (2) the retention of calcium in adult human beings on a rice-tapioca diet was greater than that observed on a rice diet; the retention of nitrogen was of the same order on both the diets. The present paper describes the results of an experiment carried out to study the effects on the growth and nutritional status of children of replacing 25 % of rice in a poor rice diet by an equal quantity of tapioca flour.
