Calcium and phosphrous nutritional status of lacto-ovo-vegetarian and omnivore students consuming meals in a lacto-ovo-vegetarian food service



Calcium and phosphrous nutritional status of lacto-ovo-vegetarian and omnivore students consuming meals in a lacto-ovo-vegetarian food service



Nutrition reports international: 365-369



The objective of the project was to compare the calcium and phosphorus intakes and status of vegetarians and omnivores consuming self-selected diets in a lacto-ovo-vegetarian food service. For 3 days, Seventh Day Adventist omnivore and vegetarian students who are primarily in a lacto-ovo-vegetarian food service kept dietary diaries. Samples of all foods served were collected and analyzed for calcium and phosphorus content. Fasting blood samples were also drawn from the subjects and serums were analyzed for calcium and phosphorus content. Vegetarian students consumed significantly higher amounts of calcium and phosphorus than did omnivore students, suggesting that under conditions described the vegetarian students were making superior food pattern selections. No significant differences in blood serum calcium and phosphorus levels between these two groups were found. (author)
