We focus on the potential of neutrino - 13C neutral current interactions in clarifying the reactor antineutrino flux around the 6 MeV region. The interactions produce 3.685 MeV photon line via the process of de-excitation of 13C in organic liquid scintillators, which can be observed in reactor neutrino experiments. We expect the future measurements of neutrino - 13C cross section in JUNO and IsoDAR@Yemilab at low energies might help testing the reactor flux models with the assistance of excellent particle identification.
