Does anyone know around how many milligrams of minerals are bound to phytic acid in one's diet? I read somewhere that the ratio was 1 mg of Phytic to 1 mg of calcium but I am not sure. I also read that there was a study that showed phytic acid at reasonable levels, where there wasn't that much calcium in the meal, actually caused the body to excrete more calcium than what was ingested.
Also, does the presence of multiple minerals effect how much of each mineral is depleted? I can't find this information anywhere. Does anyone else have any other suggestions or information about this? I really want to find ways to soak my acorn squash seeds in an acid soak or germinate them and I know that germination still leaves some phytic acid intact and so I am already very concerned as it is. Thank you for any advice you may have or for anyone who tried to help.
