Vitamin A in new food composition tables from Japan

, : Vitamin A in new food composition tables from Japan. Journal of the National Cancer Institute 73(6): 1405-1407

Standard Tables of Food Composition in Japan, Fourth Revised Edition, were issued to the public in October 1982. The contents for vitamin A include chemically estimated preformed vitamin A and provitamin A. Vitamin A values in the tables are shown as mu g retinol or mu g carotene, or both, and as international units of retinol potency per 100 g edible portion of the foods. The term "carotene" is used for the total mixed carotenoids with vitamin A activity analysed.
