Nutrient Density as a Dimension of Dietary Quality

  • PREVIEW
  • READ ARTICLE
  • OPEN PDF

ISSN

The concepts and calculations of ‘nutrient density’ and ‘critical nutrient density’ provide valuable tools for identifying, evaluating and resolving problems of micronutrient inadequacy. When micronutrient intakes are low because energy intake is low, consumption of usual foods in higher amounts may restore adequacy; but without energy deficit, micronutrient gaps require greater consumption of nutrient-rich or enriched foods. In the midst of a worldwide obesity epidemic, the dietary energy requirements and intakes associated with ‘normal’ and ‘excessive’ weight status interact with micronutrient considerations.This multi-center evaluation will serve to illustrate the principles of nutrient density across diverse populations. It was designed to recruit a target population with similar nutrient requirements (i.e., non-pregnant, non-lactating women of reproductive age), but varying energy requirements (i.e., normal weight women versus obese women).
