Intake of macronutrients and micronutrients was estimated from a diet history questionnaire in a population-based sample of persons (n=2152), 43-86 y of age.
Men and women 65 y of age or older consumed less protein, fat, cholesterol, niacin, riboflarin, calcium, iron, zinc and lycopene than their middle-aged counterparts.
After including nutrient intake from supplements, age differences in intake were no longer significant for zinc in women or for niacin and iron in men.
After further adjusting for energy intake, only protein, cholesterol, and lycopene mean intakes were lower in older compared with middle-aged men and women.
