Abstract

Three hundred fifty rats were used in three experiments to: 1) validate the everted gut procedure as an in vitro technique for estimating Zn absorption, 2) determine the effect of increasing ratios of picolinic acid (PA) to Zn on Zn absorption and 3) determine the effect of PA on absorption of Zn and amino acid complexes at pH 6, 7 and 8.
