    ABSTRACTBackgroundBiofortification is a novel method for improving the nutritional value of grains. Wheat is widely consumed worldwide. Thus, wheat zinc biofortification may improve the zinc status of populations.ObjectivesWe determined the effect of consuming zinc-biofortified wheat on plasma zinc concentrations and biomarkers of zinc-dependent functions in a controlled feeding study.MethodsThirty-six healthy adult men, aged 18 to 51 y, participated in a 10-wk zinc-controlled feeding trial. After a 2-wk run-in period to standardize zinc status, the participants consumed bread made from...
