Which of the following terms describes a foods relationship between its nutrient and caloric contents?
Answer Nutrient density
A given food may be nutrient dense (provide a large amount of a given nutrient relative to the kcals it provides) for one nutrient and not nutrient dense for another nutrient. For example, with regard to vitamin C, orange juice is nutrient dense. However, orange juice, since it lacks protein, is not nutrient dense when it comes to this nutrient.
