Abstract

The diets consumed by a large majority of the population in the developing countries are based on cereals and millets, roots and tubers and certain small amounts of legumes and negligible amounts of milk and other animal foods'. Such diets are deficient in protein, certain vitamins and minerals and do not promote optimal growth of children.' In view of the practical difficulties involved in increasing milk production in these countries, attempts are being made to use processed protein foods based on plant proteins viz. oilseed meals and legumes and fortified with essential vitamins and minerals as supplements to the diets of children.' Legumes are cultivated in large quantities in several countries, and it is possible to increase their production and use them as supplements to human diets." Since cereal diets are in general deficient in proteins. calcium, vitamin A and riboflavin it is of interest to find out the supplementary value of varying levels of legumes (with or without added vitamins and minerals) to these diets. The present paper describes the results of studies on the supplementary value of varying levels of red gram dhal (with or without vitamins and minerals) to poor diets based on rice and ragi.
