AKEREDOLU, I. A.; ADDO, A. A.  e  AKEREDOLU, O. A.. Clinical evaluation of pearl millet conophor weaning mix as supplementary food for Nigerian children . Braz. arch. biol. technol. [online]. 2005, vol.48, n.4, pp.531-536. ISSN 1678-4324.

The purpose of this study was to formulate a weaning diet from pearl millet-conophor nut flour that would promote growth. For PER, BV, NPU and TD values, casein diet was the most superior while millet-conophor diet and soy-ogi diet compared favourably with each other. For the clinical measurements of the experimental rats on the soy -ogi diet and millet-conophor diet, apart from the urinary urea level of the group on millet conophor diet which was much higher than soy-ogi, there was no difference in any of the other parameters measured. It was therefore, concluded that the millet-conophor, diet was favourably well with the soy-ogi.
