Calcium and magnesium concentrations in plants used as human and animal foods derived from global literature

The data comprise collated data on calcium and magnesium (milligrams per kilogram dry mass) in plants used as human and animal food (including fruit, vegetables, grasses, nuts and seeds) from global literature published between 1982 and 2019. Where reported strontium values are also included. Each data point is referenced.

Provenance & quality

Data were collated from published global literature and converted to milligrams per kilogram dry mass. If the water content had already been accounted for in the published data, the water_content_% column contains n/a. Where water content was not already accounted for in the data, the percentage water content is provided and was applied to the data. The data were filtered and the ranges checked; outlier values were checked for accuracy. Each data point is referenced and a full list of references is provided in the supporting document.
