Micronutrients are required in minor quantities by the human body, but are important components of human diet. The most important groups of micronutrients include vitamins, minerals, and water. Adequate intake of these micronutrients has been associated with a good diet and good health. Analysis of the use of these micronutrients as part of the diet and the application of the concepts learned in chapter five will be presented and discussed in this chapter.
