Abstract: In this paper, we discussed about the nutrient requirements of human beings from the vegetables which contains vitamins. We considered the vitamin levels in terms of trapezoidal fuzzy numbers and the fuzzy transportation problem was constructed using the cost of nutrients and edible portions of food stuffs. The optimal solution of fuzzy transportation problem has been obtained for the food stuffs that have vitamins with minimal cost.
Keywords: Fuzzy Transportation Problem, Trapezoidal Fuzzy Number, Ranking Function, Nutrients, Thiamine, Biotin.
Scope of the Article: Fuzzy Logics
