Zinc is an essential trace element known to play an important role in all human cells. Zinc absorption from the diet can be influenced by many factors and adequate dietary intake is not necessarily indicative of adequate zinc status. Foods such as whole grains, corn and rice significantly reduce zinc absorption whereas animal protein and various organic acids like citric acid will improve absorption. Therefore, zinc is best absorbed from animal food sources.
