Lysine fortification of wheat bread fed to Haitian school children



Lysine fortification of wheat bread fed to Haitian school children



American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 12: 36-48



The response of rural Haitian school children to lysine supplementation of enriched wheat flour was studied over a complete school year. A general trend toward increased stature, weight, mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration and skin-fold thickness was evident. At the level of supplementation used, a statistically significant increase in skinfold thickness was obtained at the end of the study in children in 2 of the 3 age groups receiving bread and lysine. Comparisons of the children receiving lysine supplements with both the control children and those receiving unsupplemented bread showed that of the 8 sex-age groups the children in 1 group (girls, ages nine to twelve) showed a statistically significant increase in height after 2 months, and in 2 groups (boys, ages 9 to 12; and girls, ages 13 to 14) after 4 months. Significant weight responses were found in children in 6 groups after 2 months and in 1 group after 4 months. Comparisons of those receiving lysine supplemented bread with those receiving unsupplemented bread showed significant improvement in mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration in the children in 3 of the 8 groups at the end of the school year. When comparison was made with the control group a significant increase was noted in the children in 2 of the 8 groups.
