The zinc in various cow's milk and soy-based formulas is less bioavailable than that in human milk (Johnson and Evans, 1978). The importance of various dietary factors to iron availability has long been appreciated and is now recognized for zinc; however, little is yet known of their influence on other elements. Divalent cations such as calcium, or excessive amounts of one trace element compared with another may decrease availability of trace elements by direct interference at the site of absorption (Van Campen, 1970).
