Abstract

This paper discusses the possibility of using nontraditional plant foodstuffs, i.e. carrot and radish tops, in the diet of men kept in an enclosed environment. The effect of the diet on protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism was investigated. It was found that consumption of carrot and radish tops at a dose of 75 g/day for as long as 28 days did not produce any adverse changes in the metabolic parameters examined.
