Americans Deficient In Dietary Intake Of Choline Needed for Fetal Brain Development

Women in US are not getting ample amounts of a nutrient that is essential for the promotion of normal fetal brain development.//

But the researchers found in their study that an average American consumes just 314 milligrams of choline each day that is far less than the amount recommended.

Soy lecithin, beef liver and egg yolks, are some of the foodstuffs that are rich in choline. Soy lecithin is also considered as one of the most bioactive and natural sources of the nutrient, which has no cholesterol or saturated fat.

The researchers had explained that they faced difficulty in accurately estimating the per capita choline intake, as the food composition database was only recently made available to the research community. The researchers explained in their research to have studied the diets of around 2,000 subjects by comparing them with the data from a food frequency questionnaire against a new choline database by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Steven H.
