very minute amounts, where it serves in a factor that regulates glucose metabolism and blood glucose levels. Also, it seems to affect insulin sensitivity. The chromium needs are so low that researchers have not been able to quantify a specific requirement.
The chromium content of natural feeds is very low and most of it is not available to animals. Also, most inorganic forms of chromium, such as chromium oxide and chromium chloride, are inert and not biologically available to pigs. However, a complexed form of the element, chromium picolinate, is considerably more biologically available to animals.
