Inaccuracies in Phytic Acid Measurement: Implications for Mineral Biofortification and Bioavailability
American Journal of Plant Sciences
Biofortification of commonly eaten staple food crops with essential mineral micronutrients is a potential sustainable solution to global micronutrient malnutrition. Because phytic acid (PA; 1,2,3,4,5,6-hexakis myo-inositol) reduces mineral micronutrient bioavailability, reduction of PA levels could increase the bioavailability of biofortified iron (Fe), zinc (Zn), calcium (Ca), and magnesium (Mg). PA is viewed as an anti-nutrient, yet PA and other inositol phosphates have also demonstrateddoi:10.4236/ajps.2014.51005 fatcat:mnbbahtfk5ha7kjno6kh65jmiq
