Chromium is absorbed by the small intestine in very small quantities (generally 1 to 3%, with peaks of 20%), and since the majority of chromium found in nature is in non-organic form, its rates of usage are low.
The foodstuffs that contain the highest quantities of it are brewer's yeast, wholegrain cereals and eggs.
