Abstract

The availability of the calcium contained in a high-calcium mineral water (Sangemini), popular in Italy, was compared in 18 healthy women with the availability of milk calcium ingested at the same calcium load, using45Ca as the tracer in a randomized cross-over design. At an ingested calcium load of 2.5 mmol, absorption fraction averaged 0.433 for milk and 0.475 for Sangemini water. The mean quotient of the two (Sangemini/milk) was 1.129 (±0.056, SEM, P
