Abstract

A major portion (47.8%) of the variance in calcium availability, as determined by multiple regression, could be explained by protein (p = 0.058, beta = -0.691). Major predictors of iron availability among the nutrients were iron content of the meal (p = 0.014, beta = -0.838), carbohydrates (p = 0.044, beta = -0.610) and dietary fibre (p = 0.235, beta = -0.285). Zinc availability was merely influenced by the protein (p = 0.010, beta = -0.876) and fat content of the meals (p = 0.295, beta = 0.255) in relation to other nutrients.
