Abstract

Rats were weaned onto high (HCa, 14.6 g/kg)- or low (LCa, 3.88 g/kg)-Ca diets for 12 d and the efficiency of absorption of Ca measured from 20 mg Ca (as CaCl2, labelled with 47Ca) by means of whole-body counting. The LCa group absorbed 74% of the test dose and the HCa group 60% of the test dose (P
