Abstract: In order to investigate the effects of supplementary nutrients on silk worm B. mori, an experiment was conducted with Vitamin C fortification. Leaves enriched with Vitamin C (500 ppm, 1000 ppm, 1500 ppm) were fed thrice a day for the larvae throughout the 5th instar. The supplementation of the leaves was done by Leaf Spraying Method. These treatments resulted in a significant increase of protein content in tissues such as Silk gland, Intestine, Fat body and Haemolymph. Vitamin C of 1000 ppm treatment increased the protein content in Silk gland, Intestine and Fat body. However 1500 ppm treatment decreased the protein content in Silk gland, Intestine and Fat body in both the races LXCSR2 and Pure Mysore.
