Interesting question. I didn't think it would be Magnesium Oxide in food, but I was interested in what form of magnesium foods contain.

All I could find is that "Plants take up magnesium in its ionic form Mg+2, which is the form of dissolved magnesium in the soil solution."

And:"Magnesium is the powerhouse behind photosynthesis in plants. Without magnesium, chlorophyll cannot capture sun energy needed for photosynthesis. In short, magnesium is required to give leaves their green color. Magnesium in plants is located in the enzymes, in the heart of the chlorophyll molecule. Magnesium is also used by plants for the metabolism of carbohydrates and in the cell membrane stabilization".

The chlorophyll molecule is C55H72O5N4Mg and the central Mangesium is surrounded by the 4 Nitrogens with other side chains attached and a hydrocarbon tail.

So plant magnesium would seem to be in an organic form?
