Food and nutrient intake of Seventh-day Adventist women.

Author information

  • 1School of Public Health, UCLA 90024.


Dietary intake data were collected on Seventh-day Adventist vegetarian and Methodist omnivorous postmenopausal women living in the Los Angeles area: Both groups met the Recommended Dietary Allowances except for zinc, folate, vitamin B-6, and vitamin E. Vegetarians' diets had a somewhat higher nutrient density for folate, thiamin, vitamin C, and vitamin A; lower total fat, saturated fatty acids, and cholesterol; and higher dietary fiber. No correlation between dietary intake and bone mineral content was observed. These findings are compared with those in a study on Oregon vegetarian women.
