* DV = Daily Value. DVs were developed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to help consumers compare the nutrient contents of products within the context of a total diet. The DV for zinc is 15 mg for adults and children age 4 and older. Food labels, however, are not required to list zinc content unless a food has been fortified with this nutrient. Foods providing 20% or more of the DV are considered to be high sources of a nutrient.
A deficiency of zinc can result in problems such as poor growth, difficulty in wound healing, loss of appetite, undesirable skin changes, and adverse effects on immune-system components.
