Tin is a trace mineral that is found naturally occurring in many foods of plant and animal origin, and scientists are still investigating its role in human nutrition.
- Trace Mineral Rice Protein Hydrolysate: Trace mineral rice protein hydrolysate is a trace mineral-protein complex. It is produced by enzymatically hydrolyzing rice protein and then combining the resulting peptides (small protein fragments) with tin.
