Abstract

Three kinds of Korean food (Ramyon, bread and dried Injulmi, a kind of rice bread) and basal diet were fed to ten groups of rat with consideration of their basal metabolism and some physiological changes were checked for four months. And obtained results were as follows: 1. In the rate of growth (body weight), rats fed on combined basal diet with Ramyon (20% or 33%) were slightly superior to those of simple basal diet (control case), and rats fed simply on Ramyon, bread or Injulmi were all inferior to the control. 2. Throughout the experiment, no considerable changes in intestinal bacterial flora, liver function and kidney function were observed in all cases, as compared with the control. 3. Liver tissues and kidney tissues in all cases were identified as normal and same as those of the control.
