Plant food micronutrient composition and human nutrition

TLDR
The impact on analytical laboratories assessing the nutritional composition of foods produced and the effects that agricultural systems have on the nutritional quality of foods is forecast in this paper.

Impact of mineral nutrients in plants on human nutrition on a worldwide scale.

TLDR
This review presents some ways in which plant nutritionists can contribute to preventing micronutrient malnutrition in sustainable ways and proposes agricultural approaches to finding sustainable solutions to this problem.

The impact of mineral nutrients in food crops on global human health

TLDR
This review presents some ways in which plant nutritionists can contribute to preventing micronutrient malnutrition in sustainable ways and discusses agricultural approaches to finding sustainable solutions to this problem.

Providing micronutrients through food-based solutions: a key to human and national development.

TLDR
This poverty micronutrient malnutrition (PMM) trap requires outside inputs to change the state of development in developing countries and more productive interaction between agricultural scientists and nutritionists is needed to break the PMM trap.

The world population is expanding rapidly and will likely be 10 billion by the year 2050. Limited availability of additional arable land and water resources, and the declining trend in crop yields

Breeding for micronutrients in staple food crops from a human nutrition perspective.

TLDR
The world's agricultural community should adopt plant breeding and other genetic technologies to improve human health, and the world's nutrition and health communities should support these efforts.

Elevating optimal human nutrition to a central goal of plant breeding and production of plant-based foods.

Programs against micronutrient malnutrition: ending hidden hunger.

TLDR
The nature and magnitude of the problem of MM is reviewed, possible strategies for agencies and countries who are committed to its sustained elimination are discussed and the relative simplicity and low cost of the interventions are discussed.

TLDR
Even mild Zn deficiency may contribute to pregnancy complications, low birth weight, impaired immune competence, maternal and infant mortality and morbidity, and growth failure in infancy and childhood in many developing countries.

Many Americans are not Meeting Food Guide Pyramid Dietary Recommendations

TLDR
Federal nutrition guidelines, such as those depicted graphically in the USDA Food Guide Pyramid, are intended to promote health by helping consumers choose diets that meet their nutritional needs.

Vitamin A and beta-carotene can improve nonheme iron absorption from rice, wheat and corn by humans.

TLDR
Vitamin A and beta-carotene may form a complex with iron, keeping it soluble in the intestinal lumen and preventing the inhibitory effect of phytates and polyphenols on iron absorption.

The influence of milling on the nutritive value of flour from cereal grains. 6. Sorghum

Low-tannin sorghum was milled into flour with extraction rates between 100 and 64%. The nutritive value of the flours was studied by chemical analyses and in balance experiments with growing rats.

The influence of milling on the nutritive value of flour from cereal grains. 7. Vitamins and tryptophan

Rye, wheat, barley, rice, maize and sorghum were milled into more or less refined fractions, and the content of thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B6, folate, biotin, niacin and tryptophan were determined.

Variation in the Vitamin and Mineral Content of Raw and Cooked Commercial Phaseolus Vulgaris Classes

Raw and cooked samples of nine different commercial classes of the Phaseolus vulgaris L. species were analyzed for their contents of five water-soluble vitamins and nine minerals. On a 100g dry

The effect of zinc supplementation on pregnancy outcome.

TLDR
Daily zinc supplementation in women with relatively low plasma zinc concentrations in early pregnancy is associated with greater infant birth weights and head circumferences, with the effect occurring predominantly in womenwith a body mass index less than 26 kg/m2.

Nutrient content and distribution in milling fractions of rice grain.

TLDR
Protein and protein bodies of the sub-aleurone layer and inner endosperm have similar amino-grams, and electrophoretic patterns using analytical and SDS-polyacrylamide disc gels are similar.
