Prevalence of nutrient inadequacies by vegetarian status and gender for selected nutrients. The prevalence of nutrient inadequacy was estimated by determining the proportion of the usual intake distribution (from food plus supplements) that was below the Estimated Average Requirement (EAR). * Prevalence of inadequacy higher in non-vegetarians (p < 0.05). NV = non-vegetarians, V = vegetarians.
