Glossary

Calcium is by far the most abundant metallic element in the body (1 to 2% by mass). It is mainly stored in the bones, of which it is an integral part. It contributes to the formation of the latter, as well as that of the teeth, and to the maintenance of their health. The mechanisms for maintaining a normal plasma ionized calcium concentration are, if necessary, at the expense of the skeleton and too great a decrease in calcium intake as well as an increase in excretion poses a risk to the skeleton and health. (osteoporosis in adults, rickets in children, increased risk of lead poisoning, etc.).
Calcium also plays an essential role in blood clotting, the maintenance of blood pressure and the contraction of muscles, including the heart, through its importance in neuromuscular functions. It is involved in the functioning of many enzymatic processes.

Fat is one of the three main groups of macronutrients in the human diet, along with carbohydrates and protein, and the main components of common food products such as milk, butter, tallow, lard, bacon and cooking oils. They are an important and dense source of food energy for many animals and play important structural and metabolic functions in most living things, including energy storage, waterproofing, and thermal insulation. The human body can produce the fat it needs from other food ingredients except for a few essential fatty acids which must be included in the diet. Dietary fats are also the carriers of certain flavor and aroma ingredients and vitamins which are not soluble in water.

Vitamin B2, corresponding to riboflavin, or lactoflavin, is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for the synthesis of flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) and flavin mononucleotide (FMN), two cofactors essential to flavoproteins.
Vitamin B2 plays an important role in transforming simple foods (carbohydrates, fats and proteins) into energy. It is involved in the repair metabolism of the muscles.

Saturated fatty acids are lipid molecules in which all carbon atoms carry the maximum possible hydrogen atoms. No hydrogen atoms can be added, the fat is said to be “saturated” and all bonds between carbon atoms are single (no carbon-carbon double bonds).
The impact of saturated fats on the body depends on the food you eat and its quantity. In excess saturated fatty acids form bad cholesterol in the body, which leads to clogged arteries. But, in reasonable amounts, saturated fatty acids are good for the body because they provide energy and vitamins (A, D, E, K).

Sodium is a mineral that plays an important role in the body’s state of hydration. It is present in the blood and in the extracellular fluid in which cells are bathed. Sodium also helps maintain the acid-base balance and is essential in the transmission of nerve impulses and muscle contraction. However, in excess it can have deleterious consequences. This is why current recommendations aim to limit sodium consumption.
