Major dietary factors that affect the micronutrient status of older people (formerly AN0527) - AN0840

The scientific objective of this proposal is to provide a basis for recommendations to be made for micronutrient requirements for elderly populations and to provide a better understanding of the interactions between food intake, dietary status and micronutrient status. The data has been collated for the NDNS: people aged 65 years and over by SCPR, who already have most of the data in hand. No factors are therefore likely to delay achievement of the objectives of this proposal.
