The molybdenum content of food in Germany varies between 10 and 6000 μg kg −1 dry matter. Cereal products, sugar- and starch-rich food, luxury food, bread, rolls, cake, spices and most kinds of fruits deliver 10–400 μg Mo kg −1 dry matter. Herbs and vegetables are generally rich in molybdenum, for example, cucumber can store up to 4000 μg Mo kg −1 dry matter as well as pulses. Animal products, with exception of liver and kidney, are poor in molybdenum. Vegetable foodstuffs as part of mixed diets in Germany deliver 70% of the human intake, animal foodstuffs about 20% and beverages less than 10%.
