Possible Interaction: Lactitol and Calcium Supplement

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Because dietary calcium is in a poorly absorbable form when it reaches the large intestine, attempts were made to modify the absorption of calcium present in the large intestine contents by administering lactitol.
The results indicate that in rats lactitol given chronically increases net intestinal absorption of calcium with a subsequently more positive calcium balance.
