                         agriculture and food supply prevent global food security. 
                         According to FAO, nowadays more than 600 thousand inhabitants will 
                         be undernourished by 2050 if nothing is done. Significant impacts 
                         on food production are soil degradation and use of fertilizers 
                         causing nitrogen accumulation, especially in Brazil where large 
                         scale agriculture is meant for feeding, fuel and exports rather 
                         than internal food supplies. Thus, evaluating the adequacy of food 
                         nutrient supplies allow the understanding whether 
                         micro/macronutrients deficiencies in the Brazilian population 
                         require agricultural intensification or smarter food choices. The 
                         objective of the study was to estimate the availability of macro 
                         and micro nutrients by food groups according to FAO Food Balance 
                         Sheets data to support parametrization of land use change 
                         scenarios linked to food insecurity indicators in Brazil. In order 
                         to retrieve the availability of nutrients per type of food 
                         consumed in Brazil, we adopted FAO data consisted of the Food 
                         Balance Sheets allowing the retrieval of total available food per 
                         type, food consumption and food imports data. The nutrient 
                         compositions of consumed food were obtained from food composition 
                         reference tables (TACO and USDA). The results allow a temporal 
                         dynamic evaluation of malnutrition and also the excesses or 
                         deficiencies of micro and macro nutrients available to the 
                         Brazilian population. Results are being processed and the outputs 
                         shall be coupled to risk scenarios of malnutrition in Brazil 
                         throughout the FEEDME model, which provides estimated parameters 
                         prone to be used as agricultural land expansion/intensification 
                         proxies and supporting land use/cover change scenarios.",
