Essential elements are crucial for the interaction between genetic and physiological factors. If a dietary deficiency of these elements exists, it will lead to physiological and structural abnormalities that are preventable and which may be reversed by administration of the element.

This chapter focuses on the role of selected essential and trace- element components of foods and the recommended daily intake for different groups of age and sex, as well as the bioavailability and nutrient interactions in food.
