A comparison of the food composition table-based estimates of dietary element intake with the values obtained by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry: an experience in a Japanese population.

In order to make quantitative comparison between food composition table-based estimates and instrumental measures by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES), total food duplicates were collected from 232 adult women in 10 study regions in 9 Prefectures in Japan. Daily dietary intake of 5 elements, sodium (Na), potassium (K… CONTINUE READING
