Bioavailability of iron from micro-encapsulated iron sprinkle supplement



Bioavailability of iron from micro-encapsulated iron sprinkle supplement



Food and Nutrition Bulletin 23(3 Suppl.): 133-137



To improve the iron status of infants an effort was made to increase the iron content of complementary foods by adding 12.5 mg of elemental iron to the meal in the form of micro-encapsulated ferrous fumarate coated with a lipid. The contents of the packet were sprinkled directly on to infant foods. Relative absorption of iron from this supplement was determined in a prospective randomized study with 39 infants (mean age 33.6+or-5.2 weeks) with initial haemoglobin values of >100 g/litre.
