Vitamin and mineral supplement intake (ViMiS)
Dietary supplements are commonly consumed in the UK, particularly cod liver/fish oil preparations. A nutrient calculation program was designed to convert free text into a specific or generic supplement composition. The quantities of supplement nutrients were converted to the units used for the dietary consumption of the same nutrient, allowing the two sources be added together to obtain total nutrient intake (food + supplement).
