Studies on the Nutritive Value of Blends of Sunflower Seed Meal, Cowpea Meal and Other Cereals - Supplementary Effect of Blends from Sunflower Seed Meal, Cowpea and Ragi to Cereal Based Diets


Abstract

A majority of population in developing countries subsists on diets mainly based on cereals and millets like rice, wheat, kaffir corn and ragi. Nutrition surveys carried out in India have shown that just increase in the amount of habitual diets would, to a great extent improve the nutritional status of the Indian population. In view of the food shortage, new foods and formulations based on oilseed meals with the conventional low cost foods would prove to be a promising approach.
