Abstract

N retention in 6 girls (10-11 yr) fed a poor rice diet was 0.67 g. Supplementation of this diet with low cost protein food (a 70:30 blend of wheat and soya bean flours), chickpea flour or skim-milk powder (fortified with thiamin, riboflavin and vitamins A and D), which all provided an extra 10 g protein/day, resulted in increases in N retention values to 1.22, 1.28 and 1.62 g respectively. Significant increases in net protein utilization and in the biological value of the diet were seen only with the addition of skim-milk powder. Net available protein (g/kg body wt.) from the rice diet and from the rice diet + skim-milk powder was 0.70 and 0.89 respectively.
