Mineral bioavailability is related to the activity of the free ion or small-ligand metal ion complexes present in gastrointestinal (GI) tract digesta. Therefore, it is necessary to distinguish between total ion and free-ion/small-ligand complexes (referred to simply as "free") concentrations. Free and total cation concentration in pig digesta from various… CONTINUE READING
