    • Abstract

       

      Experiments have been carried out with a view to finding out the supplementary nutritive value of coconut cake when added to “poor rice” and tapioca diets. It was observed that a supplement of coconut cake at 30 per cent. level increased the weekly growth rate of rats as well as the weight and ash content of bones. Coconut cake can therefore be used as a supplement to “poor rice” and tapioca diets.
