Norwegian term or phrase: lavoppløselige (in this context)
May be an error but...
..forbedret biotilgjengelighet var løst på denne måten for enkelte lavoppløselige og syrestabile stoffer...
They must surely mean substances that don't dissolve much (or is the emphasis on "difficult to dissolve")?

low-soluble


Explanation:
Low solubility means that a substance does not dissolve easily in water.
Poorly water-soluble or low-solubility compounds are equivalent terms that are often used for example when talking about enhancing the bioavailability of various poorly water-soluble drugs.

Example sentence(s):
  • Solubility is the property of a solid, liquid, or gaseous chemical substance called solute to dissolve in a liquid solvent to form a homogeneous solution of the solute in the solvent
