Saris k Cited by: 8. Of the micronutrients, only Zn is directly linked in the food chain such that deficiency is extensive in both humans and their food crops. Zinc deficiency is therefore the highest priority among micronutrients for agriculture to by: The Micronutrients Database is an interactive platform for summarizing data published in reports and manuscripts on the micronutrient status of populations representative at the national, regional (within country) and first administrative level (e.g. canton, state, province). Quantitative assessment of micronutrients is used to diagnose deficiencies or excess, as well as to establish dietary guidelines by regulatory agencies, e.g., the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Micronutrients can be quantitatively measured in various biological matrices such as blood, urine, saliva, cells, hair, and by: 8.

The first step in assessing the micronutrient status of a population involves determining the prevalence, severity and distribution of micronutrient deficiencies. l his is usually done by using clinical and biochemical indicators of deficiency. The Micronutrient Reportsummarizes current data on the prevalence of vitamin A, iodine, and iron deficiencies and reports on the implementation and progress of programs to battle these deficiencies in developing countries.
