To investigate retention of Zn from U.S. diets, two research diets were developed using 200 foods which represent average intakes of 25-30 year-old U.S. men and women, respectively (FDA Total Diet Study).
The women's diet contained 7.8 mg Zn (analyzed) and 1570 kcal (calculated) daily; the men's diet contained 14.0 mg Zn and 2545 kcal.
The diets were consumed by 14 women and 14 men for nine weeks.
Although the food lists were intended to represent typical intakes in the U.S., they did not provide sufficient energy for weight maintenance.
