The human body requires more than 22 mineral elements that can be supplied by an appropriate diet (Philip and Martin 2005). However, the diets of the populations subsisting largely on cereals, or inhabiting regions where soil mineral imbalances occur, often lack Fe, Zn, Ca, Mg and Mn. These minerals are known to play an essential role in the metabolism and physiological process of human body. Unfortunately, over three billion people in the world are malnourished. Many of those afflicted are… CONTINUE READING
