Title
Measurement of the daily dietary calcium and magnesium intake in Belgium, using duplicate portion sampling
Author
Abstract
The daily dietary calcium and magnesium intakes in Belgium were evaluated by sampling duplicate portions of food, destruction in a microwave oven and their calcium and magnesium contents determined by atomic absorption spectroscopy. The mean intake value for calcium (618 +/- 125 mg/day) was found to be less than those values measured in most other countries and was below the recommended daily allowance (RDA). The mean intake value for magnesium (271 +/- 44 mg/day) was similar to levels found in most other countries, but was below the RDA value for healthy adult men (350 mg/day) whilst being adequate for healthy women (280 mg/day).
