Initial uptake and absorption of nonheme iron and absorption of heme iron in humans are unaffected by the addition of calcium as cheese to a meal with high iron bioavailability



Initial uptake and absorption of nonheme iron and absorption of heme iron in humans are unaffected by the addition of calcium as cheese to a meal with high iron bioavailability



American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 76(2): 419-425



Background: Quantitative data on the mucosal uptake and serosal transfer of nonhaem-iron absorption in humans and the effects of calcium on these components are limited. Objective: Our objective was to measure the initial mucosal uptake and the subsequent serosal transfer of nonhaem iron and to determine the effects of adding calcium to a meal on both haem- and nonhaem-iron retention.
