Abstract

A probabilistic model was developed to estimate the intake level for Fe, Zn, Ca, P, Mg, Mn, Cu, Na, and K derived from consumption of weaning foods in Spain. They were pooled into 10 different categories based on the main ingredient used in its formulation (chicken, chicken-veal, hake, ham, varied vegetables, chicken-ham, lamb, veal, sole, and beef-ham). The results reported that trace elements contents were especially low and inadequate according to the Dietary Reference Intake especially to Fe, Zn, and Ca and in less extent for Cu and P. Instead, Na contents were moderately high and near to upper limit of this element.
