Title: FOOD PRODUCT CONTAINING CALCIUM SALT GRANULES AND DIETARY FIBER
Abstract:
Dietary fiber is known to have the effect of inhibiting the absorption of calcium from the intestinal tract. Thus, in order to effectively absorb calcium into the body, it is preferable to not consume calcium and dietary fiber at the same time; however, doing so can be a hassle for consumers attempting to effectively supplement these minerals and components. In the present invention, refined calcium salt having an average particle size of no more than 50 μm, wherein primary particles of calcium salt that are flat with an average length of no more than 2 μm in the planar direction have aggregated to form secondary particles having an average particle size of no more than 50 μm, is capable of suppressing the absorption inhibiting action of dietary fiber consumed at the same time and enhances the absorption rate of calcium to the body. As a result, it is possible to provide consumers with a food product that includes both calcium and dietary fiber and enables a high calcium absorption rate, and thus it is possible to improve the convenience for consumers.
