Zinc intakes of 12 matched pairs of lacto-ovo-vegetarian and non-vegetarian adults were compared. Analysis of 72-hour aliquots of food intake excluding supplements showed the mean daily zinc intake for both categories (lacto-ovo-vegetarians, 37.93 + 23.97 mg.; non-vegetarians, 53.39 + 31.99 mg.) to generously exceed the Recommended Daily Allowance, which is 15 mg. A significant difference of zinc intake occurred between the two groups (p< .005), with a trend toward higher zinc intake by the non-vegetarian member of each pair.
