Depending on the molybdenum content and acidity of the soil, the molybdenum content of
food may differ by as much as a factor 100. In the Netherlands, the molybdenum content in
the soil (and in food) is relatively low; whereas molybdenum intake in most countries is somewhere between 100-500 mcg a day, daily intake in the Netherlands is about 48-96 mcg. For adults, a molybdemum intake of 600 mcg a day is considered safe; children are allowed 10 mcg molybdenum per kilogram of bodyweight per day.
