Intestinal Absorption of Phosphates

Because phosphate ions are readily absorbed by the small intestine (i.e., at efficiencies of 65-75% in adults and even higher in children), a prompt increase in serum inorganic phosphate (Pi) concentration follows within an hour after ingestion of a meal begins. (Calcium ions or Ca2+ are much more slowly absorbed.)
