Although dairy products account for about 70% of dietary calcium, total calcium intake remains inadequate.
LIPOCAL™ is a water dispersible micronized source of calcium coated with lecithin. This unique delivery system increases calcium dispersibility and absorption.
One of the most effective recognized ways for the prevention of calcium deficiency is food fortification.However there are some problems associated to calcium fortification such as:
Animal source of calcium
Low calcium concentration
It is rapidly absorbed
May distort flavors in food systems
Stimulating but rapid effect
High calcium concentration
More bioavailable than other calcium sources
Non-animal source of calcium
