Abstract

In a previous publication from this laboratory, Murthy, Reddy, Swaminathan & Subrahmanyan (1955) reported that undernourished children subsisting on an inadequate and ill-balanced vegetarian diet grew at a subnormal rate, but showed a remarkable adaptation to low levels of intake, maintaining on average slightly positive nitrogen, calcium and phosphorus balances. In further investigations, Subrahmanyan, Reddy, Moorjani, Sur, Doraiswamy, Sankaran, Bhatia & Swaminathan (1954) and Sur, Reddy, Swaminathan & Subrahmanyan (1955) found that supplementation of the diet of such undernourished children with 12 oz. daily of groundnut milk curds, significantly increased growth and nutritional status and also the retention of N, Ca, and P. Subrahmanyan, Joseph, Doraiswamy, Narayanarao, Sankaran & Swaminathan (1957) reported that a supplement of 2 02. daily of a multipurpose food (MPF) (composed of groundnut flour and Bengal-gram flour and fortified with certain vitamins and calcium phosphate) for a period of 5 months produced a marked improvement in the growth and nutritional status of such children. This paper deals with studies on the effect of the multipurpose-food supplement on the metabolism of N, Ca and P.
