Abstract, Crossmark, 2011

Cereals are a major source of micronutrients, the bioavailability of minerals such as iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium, is low because they are present as insoluble complex with food components such as phytic acid. After several readings it should be remembered that the phytic acid in whole is seen as an anti-nutritional factor than therapeutic element. The elimination of phytic acid can be done in several ways and should not be total if we want to minimize losses of dry matter and minerals.
