The present rat balance study investigated Ca availability from the whole indigenous small fish species, mola (Amblypharyngodon mola) from Bangladesh and from skimmed milk. Four groups of six young male rats each were fed ad libitum with diets containing either small fish or milk, at 100 or 160 g crude protein/kg diet dry matter. The study was conducted for 28 d and faeces and urine samples were collected in two balance periods: day 8-14 and 22-28. The Ca and N contents of the diets, faeces and…

Fish bones--a highly available calcium source for growing pigs.

Results indicate that fish bones may be a useful and well absorbed calcium source in food, feed or as supplement.

Nutritional value of Pacific herring bone co-ingested with fish meat as a calcium source in retort seafood

Male 5-week-old F344 rats were fed four types of experimental diet with different Ca and protein sources for 30 days, and the effect of feeding retort-treated herring bone on Ca absorption and bone

Effect of calcium compound obtained from fish by-product on calcium metabolism in rats

The results revealed that high bioavailability of calcium compound could be prepared by sintering process from fish bone, and femur length of rats was shortened following feeding with the sintered calcium compound, compared with the length of the control rats.

The potential of nutrient-rich small fish species in aquaculture to improve human nutrition and health.

Small fish are a common food and an integral part of the everyday carbohydraterich diets of many population groups in poor countries. These populations also suffer from undernutrition, including

Japanese citrus fruit (sudachi) juice is associated with increased bioavailability of calcium from whole small fish and suppressed bone resorption in rats.

Results indicate that sudachi juice added to shirasuboshi was associated with increased calcium bioavailability and suppressed bone resorption in rats.

Fish-bone peptide increases calcium solubility and bioavailability in ovariectomised rats

The results proved the beneficial effects of fish-meal in preventing Ca deficiency due to increased Ca bioavailability by FBP intake and that FBP II could inhibit the formation of insoluble Ca salts in neutral pH.

Calcium from salmon and cod bone is well absorbed in young healthy men: a double-blinded randomised crossover design

Bones from Atlantic salmon and Atlantic cod are suitable as natural Ca sources in e.g. functional foods or as supplements, as well as as supplements for human consumption.

The role of fish in food-based strategies to combat vitamin A and mineral deficiencies in developing countries.

Fish consumption data on the species level, nutrient analyses, awareness of the nutritional value of fish, as well as promotion of the production and accessibility of nutrient-dense species can lead to the use of fish in food-based strategies to combat nutrient deficiencies in poor people in Asia and Africa.

The relationship between mineral and nitrogen balances in growing pigs fed diets supplemented with zinc oxide

The present study was conducted to determine if there were effects of increasing levels of dietary zinc supplementation on the turnover of zinc and other minerals and trace elements in growing pigs.

The mucosal phytase and alkalineosphatase activities were mutually correlated, supporting the view that "phytase" activity is a less substrate-specific action of alkaline phosphatase activity or a fraction of this activity.

Lactose, calcium source and age affect calcium bioavailability in rats.

Data from these experiments show that lactose enhances Ca bioavailability at several stages of development and the effect is not markedly diminished by high Ca diets.

Casein phosphopeptides improve zinc and calcium absorption from rice-based but not from whole-grain infant cereal.

CPP addition improved calcium and zinc absorption from rice-based cereal, while no effect was seen from whole-grain cereal.

Calcium absorbability from spinach.

It is conclusively established that spinach Ca is much less readily available than milk Ca.

The purpose of this paper is to summarize the current information on how dietary factors affect the bioavailability of calcium and host-related factors, such as calcium and vitamin D status, age, which affect the absorption of calcium once it is available in the intestinal lumen in a theoretically absorbable form.

On the molecular mechanism of intestinal calcium transport.

The intestinal absorption of calcium is certainly a complex process, dependent on several factors of which vitamin D, via 1,25(OH)2D3, is the major controlling hormone. The efficiency of calcium

Importance of lactose in yogurt for mineral utilization

The primary purpose of this study was to assess the relative effect of yogurt-based diets and casein-based diets supplemented with quantities of lactose or its component sugars (glucose, galactose)
