Special Issue "Forgotten Dietary Minerals and Health"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 June 2020).
Interests: dietetics education; obesity management; infant nutrition; public health nutrition; diabetes management
In this Special Issue of Nutrients, we would like to bring together papers considering the role and dietary intake of some of the ‘neglected’ dietary minerals. We will be particularly interested in the associated nutritional status in vulnerable population groups—for example, older people, pregnant, and those populations who may be following quite restrictive diets, including vegetarians and vegans.
Minerals of particular interest include iodine, zinc, chromium, selenium and iron—but this is not to say other minerals would not also be of interest.
We welcome different types of manuscript submissions, including original research articles and up-to-date reviews (systematic reviews and meta-analyses).
Potential topics may include but are not limited to the associations between mineral intake, dietary patterns, nutritional biomarkers, and anthropometric outcomes and certain disease states.
