  Jordan imports rice from different countries without any quality preferences. Twelve varieties of cooked rice marketed in Jordan were analyzed. The content per serving of these varieties were computed for energy, protein, carbohydrates, fat, calcium, sodium, potassium, magnesium, manganese, copper, iron and phosphorous. The protein content per serving found to range from 0.49 g for La Cigala rice to 6.2 g for Harvest rice. The fat content for all rice brands was less than 0.37 g per serving. The energy content ranged from 172.12 g/serving for Basmati rice to 212.25 g/serving for Sun White rice. Generally, all rice varieties contain significant amounts of minerals per serving. Ruzzana found to contain the highest level of calcium (38.2 mg/serving) and Amber the lowest calcium content (6.7 mg/serving). Magnesium content found to range from 5.7 mg/serving for Royal Umberella rice to 16.3 mg/serving for Ruzzana rice. Consumption of one serving of Harvest cooked rice will cover 13.5% of the daily requirement of protein for females and 11.1% for males. Manganese content of one serving of Harvest, Sun White, Abu bent and La Cigala will cover 22.2% of the daily requirements for females and 14.7% for males, while consumption of one of Basmati, Sos rice or Amber will cover only 11.1% and 8.75 of requirement for females and males respectively. Planning a healthful diet is not a simple task. Dietary Reference Intake planning and assessing the diets of individuals or groups of healthy individuals according to their stage of life and sex. Food choice is a function of many factors, including personal preferences, habits, ethnic heritage and tradition. Dietary guidelines for Americans, consider whole grain products like rice are among the food groups that form the basis of a healthy diet. Including rice as part of a healthy, balanced diet can be linked to overall healthier eating patterns. Rice eaters are more likely to eat a diet consistent with the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

  To study the effects of dietary iron source (basal diet-FeSO4.7H2O, liver, lentil, spinach, liver + lentil, liver+spinach and lentil+spinach) on iron bioavailability, fifty-six Albino Sprague Dawley derived male 21 days old rats were fed on iron-deficient diet (7.8 mg Fe kg-1 diet) and the mentioned seven iron containing diets (40 mg Fe kg-1 diet) for 10 days. Rats fed liver diet showed higher iron apparent absorption (52.1%), hemoglobin (Hb) gain (0.94 g/100 mL), Hb-iron gain (1.2 mg), Hb-regeneration efficiency (HRE%) (50.8%), relative efficiency of HRE% (106.5%), packed cell volume gain (2.22%) and mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (0.64 g dL-1). Liver resulted in an increase in these parameters when mixed with lentil and spinach diets. However, rats fed iron free diet showed the higher dry matter absorption.

  Emotional changes can influence feeding behavior. Feed intake is the cornerstone of animal productivity. The consequences of inadequate intake include inhibited growth, delayed puberty, infertility, reduced milk production and lowered resistance to parasites and disease. In this study, the histological changes observed in male albino rats’ stomach mucosa which was exposed to hunger were examined. Pieces from stomach were taken in the 1st-5th days following last feeding. These tissue specimens were fixed by using 10% neutral formalin which was compressed. After routine tissue checks, the tissue pieces were sunk into paraffin wax and some blocks were prepared. With the aim to examine histological structures of the pieces taken, they were stained with Hematoxylin and Eosin (H and E). An increase in the number of blood cells taken part in stomach tissue was observed in the first 24 h. At the end of the 3rd day of hunger, necrosis of fundic glands, especially the base of fundus and mild congestion of mucosal blood vessels were observed. A widening in glandular epithelium lumen was seen after 2 days. A tendency to slim was observed in mucosa layer of the surface and glandular lumen during hunger. In the stomach mucosa, structural changes were caused by hunger. It was found that these changes were in direct proportion with hunger duration.
