Experimental: Cassava Treatment 1
Single meal containing bio-fortified, high carotenoid cassava without oil.
Other: Beta-Carotene bio-fortified cassava porridge without oil
300 g of porridge (11 ounces) containing 100 g drained mashed cassava and approximately 1 mg beta-carotene.
Experimental: Cassava Treatment 2
Single meal containing bio-fortified, high carotenoid cassava with oil.
Other: Beta-Carotene bio-fortified cassava porridge with oil
300g porridge (11 ounces) containing 100 g drained mashed cassava, 15 g peanut oil, and approximately 1 mg beta-carotene.
Active Comparator: Cassava Treatment 3
Single meal containing low carotenoid cassava with oil and retinyl palmitate.
Other: White cassava porridge with retinyl palmitate reference dose
300 g porridge containing 15 mL peanut oil, 100 g drained mashed cassava, and a tracer of approximately .3 mg pure food-grade retinyl palmitate.
- Vitamin A equivalency from varieties of cassava with and without oil [ Time Frame: 0, 60, 150, 240, 330, 420, 510, 600, 1440 min ]Vitamin A and other carotenoids will be measured in triacylglycerol rich lipoprotein fractions at 0, 60, 150, 240, 330, 420, 510, 600, and 1440 minutes after consumption of cassava containing meal.
