and presweetened cereals are among the poorest sources of pantothenic acid.
TABLE 25.1 PANTOTHENIC ACID CONTENT OF FOODS
represents the average daily intake of pantothenic acid for infants exclusively fed human milk. The AI for men and for nonpregnant and pregnant women is based on usual pantothenic acid intakes by adults in the United States. The AI for children 1 to 18 years old was set by extrapolating from the adult AI, based on body weight and growth factors. The AI during lactation is 7 mg/day because approximately 2 mg of pantothenic acid is secreted in human milk daily (18).
