GONZALEZ SANCHEZ, M.ª E.; RIVERA TORRES, A. y MORAN FAGUNDEZ, L. J.. Nutritional trial to evaluate calcium intake in postmenopausic women on a diet of fermented milk enriched in calcium and vitamin D (Densia®). Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2012, vol.27, n.2, pp.537-541. ISSN 0212-1611.
Aim: To analyse the calcium contribution of one unit of fermented milk enriched with calcium and vitamin D in the daily calcium intake for postmenoupausic women. Subjects: 261 postmenoupausic women. Methods: 28 day duration of exploratoy, nutritional trial. All subjects received dietary advice on how to increase calcium intake in the daily diet and excercise recommendations with a unit of a fermented milk enriched with calcium and vitamin D (Densia®) which was comsumed daily for the 28 day duration trial. A dietary assesment was used to evaluate dietary intake of calcium at the beggining and at the end of the trial. Results: The average amount of calcium intake in miligrams was higher at the end of the trial versus the average intake at the begining of the trial. The number of women who achieved the calcium recommendation intake for their ages increased at the end of the trial. Conclusions: Dietetic methods and the daily consumption of a unit of fermented milk enriched with calcium and vitamin D increases the average daily dietetic contribution of calcium. However, a percentage of the subjects still presented a daily calcium intake below the dietary recommendations, suggesting the need to adopt more intense strategies to help increase daily recommended calcium intake.
