Summary: The objective of this study, published in the Journal of Nutrition in May 2010, was to determine the effect of supplementing low-phytate maize, a daily zinc supplement, or both in infants between the ages of 6 and 12 months on impaired linear growth velocity, a common feature of zinc deficiency.
