The amount of chromium, iron, manganese, copper and zinc present in the food of seventy different daily diets were determined. The average daily intake of each element by the population was thus calculated. Samples were taken from foods ready to be consumed in collective dining roorns and private dwellings in order to have a sufficiently complete picture of the eating habits of the population. The following daily intakes emerged: chromium 145.6 mg, iron 13.4 mg, manganese 2.46 mg, copper 2.2 mg, zinc 15.2 mg. These values, when compared to various nutritional standards, can be considered to be adequate for chromium, copper and manganese, while that of iron is not adequate for fertile women ami that of zinc is insufficient for adult males aged from 16 to 60.

Abstract

The amount of chromium, iron, manganese, copper and zinc present in the food of seventy different daily diets were determined. The average daily intake of each element by the population was thus calculated. Samples were taken from foods ready to be consumed in collective dining roorns and private dwellings in order to have a sufficiently complete picture of the eating habits of the population. The following daily intakes emerged: chromium 145.6 mg, iron 13.4 mg, manganese 2.46 mg, copper 2.2 mg, zinc 15.2 mg. These values, when compared to various nutritional standards, can be considered to be adequate for chromium, copper and manganese, while that of iron is not adequate for fertile women ami that of zinc is insufficient for adult males aged from 16 to 60.
