ABSTRACT
The research was aimed at evaluating dietary energy value and the supply of, vitamins and minerals in diets of I year female students of the Wrocław University of Environmental and Life Science depending on the place of residence (a family home, academic campus or a rented apartments). Analyses were carried out with the use of triple 24-h dietary recall. No statistically significant differences were demonstrated between energy value and contents of vitamins and minerals in diets of all female students examined nor in the group of students living in Wrocław (n=127) nor in those of students from smaller towns living in academic dormitories or rented apartments (n=147). Statistically significantly higher intake of vitamin B1 was only observed with diets of Wrocław citizens (1.1 mg). An average diets of all female students examined was characterised by a low intake of vitamins B1, B2, B6 and niacin (approx. . 50-75% of Polish recommended dietary allowances ) as well as calcium and iron (51% and 63% of dietary allowances, respectively). In addition, analyses demonstrated a too high intake of sodium (250% of minimum intake - without additional salting) and phosphorus (118% of the Polish RDA). Insufficient contents of vitamins and minerals were shown in approx. 1/3 of the examined diets of the female students under study.
