Protein availability in India is 71.5 g/day/capita but average consumption is approximate equal to51 g/day/capita due to losses incurred from production to consumption. Microbial contamination of foodgrains may indicate possible presence of toxins causing allergies, asthma etc. The use of an activated clay containing meta-hydrogen halloysite at -1% and tricalcium phosphate with glucose and pyridoxine at 0.2% controls infestation and provides necessary minerals. Heavy storage losses caused by rodents can be controlled by making warehouses rodent-proof and using baits. Outdated milling techniques cause losses of rice and legumes; yield could be raised by 3% and 10-15% respectively by using efficient equipment. Extraction of oil from rice bran would make it suitable for animal feed. Supplementation of milk, and substitution of vegetable proteins is mentioned. Control measures will have max. effect at village level where over 70% of the food is stored and consumed, and should be included in existing community development.
