The effects of dietary lactosucrose on calcium absorption from the intestine and calcium accumulation in bones were investigated in growing female rats. The apparent calcium-45 (<SUP>45</SUP>Ca) absorption, residual <SUP>45</SUP>Ca ratio in the body, and <SUP>45</SUP>Ca accumulation in the femur and tibia of lactosucrose-supplemented rats were significantly higher than in control rats 24 h after the administration of a <SUP>45</SUP>CaCl<SUB>2</SUB> solution.
