ABSTRACT
The concentration of chromium was determined in the tissues of growing rats after the addition to the diet of a yeast preparation with an increased chromium content (III). The experiment was carried out on 16 male Wistar rats divided in two groups and fed mixtures that were supplemented with chromium in the following quantities in the particular groups (in mg ∙ kg-1): I-0.19; II-0.57. Supplementation of chromium did not affect its content in blood and M. longissimus dorsi but substantially increased it in the kidneys, liver, skin with hair, and pancreas.
