Abstract

The previous communication (Murthy, Reddy, Swaminathan & Subrahmanyan, 1955) reported that undernourished children, subsisting on an inadequate and illbalanced vegetarian diet, showed a remarkable adaptation to low levels of intake, and maintained, on the average, slightly positive nitrogen, calcium and phosphorus balances. The children were stunted, and their rate of growth was very low. In another publication from this laboratory Subrahmanyan, Reddy, Moorjani, Sur, Doraiswamy, Sankaran, Bhatia & Swaminathan (1954) reported that supplementation of the diet of the undernourished children with 12 oz. groundnut-milk curd daily for a period of 6 months produced a marked improvement in their growth and nutritional status, compared with the performance of a control group receiving a supplement of an equivalent amount of calories in the form of maize starch-sugar pudding. In view of the marked improvement observed in the growth and nutritional status of the children, it was considered to be of interest to study the effect of the groundnut-milk curd supplement on the metabolism of nitrogen, calcium and phosphorus. The results of this study are here reported.
