We will use a combination of in vitro screening coupled with in vivo long term feeding trials of poultry. We previously demonstrated that the chicken model exhibits the appropriate responses to iron (Fe) deficiency and can serve as a model for iron (Fe) bioavailability. These feeding trials will span up to 8 weeks depending on the observed effects of the test diets.
