BUENO, Luciana. Effect of medium-chain triglycerides, fiber and calcium on the availability of magnesium and zinc by an in vitro method and response surface methodology. Quím. Nova [online]. 2008, vol.31, n.2, pp.306-311. ISSN 0100-4042.

Nutritional therapy with enteral diets became highly specialized in the last years. This work aims to study the effect of the components of a formulation, namely fiber, calcium and medium-chain triglycerides, for dialysability of minerals. Analysis of multiple variables was done using response surface methodology. The level curve showed that the tertiary interaction MCT-fiber-calcium was the one that presented the highest synergism in the formulation. The proportion of 33% MCT, 25% fiber and 42% calcium, gave the best formulation for availability of magnesium.

Keywords : magnesium; zinc; availability.
