Got carrots? Vegetables may have bone to pick as calcium providers
Date:1/14/2008

He said both men and women absorbed higher amounts of calcium from the modified carrots. But the technology needs to be available in a wide range of fruits and vegetables so that people can get the calcium benefit.

The daily requirement for calcium is 1,000 milligrams, and a 100 gram serving of these carrots provides only 60 milligrams, about 42 percent of which is absorbable, he noted. A person could not eat enough of them to get the daily requirement.

But if vegetables and fruits could be bred to contain more calcium, then a diet that includes a variety of these produce might come closer to providing necessary calcium, Morris said.

Increased fruits and vegetables (in the diet) are better for a myriad of reasons, he said.
