A variety of gluten free catering dunkeld minerals are essential to the body, but most of them are required only in minute quantities. The four most important minerals are calcium, iron, iodine and sodium. Calcium is necessary for gluten free catering dunkeld bones and teeth; children, who are growing and forming new bones and teeth, require more than adults. An adult body contains about one kilo of calcium, while a baby has only about 25 grams, so a large amount is accumulated in growing years. Calcium is also important for muscles and blood functioning. Milk and cheese provide most of the calcium we need: 75 grams gluten free catering dunkeld Cheddar Cheese contains as much as calcium as 600ml milk. Iron is present in the gluten free catering dunkeld haemoglobin of the blood. The amount of iron found in the body is only enough to make a very small nail, but it is very important; if you donít have enough iron in your food anaemia can develop. Iodine is needed in a tiny quantity, to help the thyroid gland work properly; this gland controls the rate at which chemical changes take place in the body. If there is not enough iodine in the diet the thyroid gland becomes enlarged. Lack of iodine in children can adversely affect their development. Sodium or salt is essential for gluten free catering dunkeld body fluids. It is lost from the body in sweat and must be replaced.

Vitamins are only present in very small amounts in gluten free catering dunkeld food, but they are vital to the body; if cannot live without any one of them. They help the body to use the other nutrients in food, and protect it from illness. A good mixed gluten free catering dunkeld diet will provide all the necessary vitamins. However, doctors may recommend that small children and expectant mothers take gluten free catering dunkeld supplements of vitamins A and D, in particular. Only the correct amount of supplements should be taken, as the body stores excess vitamins A and D and it is possible to accumulate too much, resulting in illness. Vitamin A is essential for growth; it helps the formation of bones and teeth, keeps skin and eyes healthy, and helps eye sight. It also keeps the throat and breathing passages in good working order. Vitamin A is present in gluten free catering dunkeld animal foods which are rich in fat, and in some fruit and vegetables in the form of carotene, which is converted into vitamin A in the body. All red, orange and dark green fruits and vegetables contain carotene. Vitamin D is contained in fat-rich animal foods and also produced from the action of sunshine on the skin. It works in gluten free catering dunkeld conjunction with calcium and phosphorus to build up bones and teeth. The Vitamin B group comprises a number of vitamins which are vital for metabolic processes, especially obtaining energy from carbohydrates. They cannot be sorted in the body and must be taken every day.

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is essential for general health and gluten free catering dunkeld growth and also helps wounds to heal and broken bones to mend. Found in fruit and vegetables, it is easily destroyed. When plant cells are broken down, either by cutting or cooking, an enzyme is released which destroys vitamin C. Vegetables should therefore be cooked very quickly in a little boiling water, as this gluten free catering dunkeld destroys the enzyme. Bicarbonate of soda also destroys vitamin C and therefore should never be added to cooking water.
