Erratum to: ‘Intake of Macro- and Micronutrients in Danish Vegans’

The original article was published in Nutrition Journal 2015 14:115

It has come to our attention that there are some errors in the original manuscript [1].

  1. 1.

    In the sentences “For vegans the intake of macro- and micronutrients (including supplements) did not reach the NNR for protein, vitamin D, iodine and selenium.” and “Vegans reached the recommended daily intake of energy and fats but did not reach the recommended daily intake of protein (Table 2)”, the statements are incorrect regarding the protein intake in vegans. Protein intake among vegans reaches the Nordic Nutrition Recommendations (NNR) as presented in Table 2.

  2. 2.

    In Table 2 the P value from the multiple linear regression testing for difference in means of energy intake between the vegan women and women from the DANSDA study is presented as 0.44. Instead, it should be 0.2 as presented in the text.

  3. 3.

    In the published Additional file 1: Table S1 and Additional file 2: Table S2 the values of recommended daily intake (from NNR) are outdated [2] and the most recent values [3] are presented in the corrected Additional file 1: Table S1 and Additional file 2: Table S2 in this erratum. The published Additional file 1: Table S1 and Additional file 2: Table S2 erroneously refer to an age and gender matched group of 1 257 individuals, whereas the actual number of matched individuals is 70 (one-to-one matched).

  4. 4.

    The published Additional file 3: Table S3 erroneously refers to a group of vegan men (n = 24) and women (n = 24) supplementing with specific nutrients, whereas the actual numbers are 20 and 26 for men and women, respectively, as presented in the corrected Additional file 3: Table S3 in this erratum.

The changes do not affect our conclusions.
