Abstract

The nutritive value of idli (a steamed cake from a fermented dough of rice and black gram dhal) fortified with Indian multipurpose food or Bengal gram flour has been studied by growth experiments on albino rats. The results show that (1) unfortified idli diet promotes significantly higher growth than rice diet and (2) diet containing idli fortified with multipurpose food promotes significantly higher growth than those containing unfortified idli or idH fortified with Ben~al gram flour. The livers of animals receiving the rice diet show parenchymal damage of a mild protein deficiency type, while the livers of animals receiving idli or idli fortified with Bengal gram and Indian multipurpose food are quite normal. The mean fat content of livers of rats receiving diets based on unfortified idli and idH fortified with Indian multipurpose food or Bengal gram was significantly less than that of livers of animals fed on the rice diet.
