Abstract

In order to examine the wholesomeness of gamma-irradiated polished rice, 400 albino rats were fed on four different diets consisting of rice irradiated at 50Krad(LLTG) and 100 Krad dosages(HLTG), non-irradiated rice(PCG) and wheat(NCG) for 7 month period. No significant difference was observed among the four diets with respect to feed intake, gain of body weight, feed efficiency and growth rate of the experimental animal.
