A mineral is called a major mineral when the body requires amounts greater than 100 milligrams (0.004 oz) per day. A trace mineral is required by the body less than 100 milligrams per day.

Minerals are unique nutrients in several respects. Unlike carbs, fats, proteins, and vitamins, minerals are not organic molecules. They are inorganic elements or atoms. Minerals contain no calories and, although essential, are needed by the body in very small amounts. After ingestion, the structure of minerals is not altered, unlike the reaction of macronutrients, which undergo changes in structure during digestion. Because of the minerals structure, they are unaffected by cooking techniques, digestive processes and/or exposure to enzymes.
