The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of oral iron supplementation, in the form of fortified breads, on the growth performance, health, iron status parameters, and fecal metabolome of anemic piglets. A study was conducted on 24 hybrid (Large White × Landrace × Duroc) piglets. From day 44, the post-natal 12 piglets were supplemented with 100 g of one of two experimental breads, each fortified with 21 mg of ferrous sulphate, either encapsulated or not. After one week of oral…

Comparison Study of Iron Bioaccessibility from Dietary Supplements and Microencapsulated Preparations
Encapsulation seems to limit the interaction of iron with the food matrix and protect it against oxidation, thus making it more accessible for intestinal uptake, according to the results of the present study.
Iron bioavailability of four iron sources used to fortify infant cereals, using anemic weaning pigs as a model
Ferrous fumarate and MDFP were equally as bioavailable as the reference salt, and were used significantly better than EI in piglets, contributing to extend the evidence-based results for recommending the most suitable fortificant for infant cereals.
Iron bioavailability of four iron sources used to fortify infant cereals, using anemic weaning pigs as a model.
Iron (Fe) deficiency anemia in young children is a global health concern which can be reduced by Fe fortification of foods. Cereal is often one of the first foods given to infants, providing adequate
In Vivo Effects of Einkorn Wheat (Triticum monococcum) Bread on the Intestinal Microbiota, Metabolome, and on the Glycemic and Insulinemic Response in the Pig Model
The observed changes, at both a compositional and metabolic scale, strongly suggest that EB consumption may support a health-promoting configuration of the intestinal ecosystem.
Dietary improvement of the iron statute of the rats with experimental anemia
Investigations showed out that during sufficient iron intake rehabilitation of the body iron reserve depends considerably on the presence of antinutritive factors, and the production method used for fortified products with mineral origin micronutrients (iron) could be based on the use of the lactic-acid fermentation procedures using wheat bran.
Iron Supplementation in Suckling Piglets: An Ostensibly Easy Therapy of Neonatal Iron Deficiency Anemia
It is proposed that iron-deficient piglets constitute a convenient animal model for performing pre-clinical studies with iron supplements, and new iron supplements are considered with the aim to combine the improvement of hematological status, blunting of hepcidin expression, and minimizing the toxicity of the administered iron.
Evaluation of rheological parameters of dough with ferrous lactate and ferrous gluconate
The aim of this study was to analyse the effect ferrous gluconate and ferrous lactate on the rheological be- haviour of dough from a high extraction rate. For fortification of wheat flour, we used
Probiotic supplementation in trained trotter horses: effect on blood clinical pathology data and urine metabolomic assessed in field
Blood parameters, together with urine molecular profile, suggest the mechanism underlying this positive effect is connected to a switch of energy source in muscle from carbohydrates to short-chain fatty acids.
Impact of iron fortification on anaemia and iron deficiency among pre-school children living in Rural Ghana.
National nutritional policy coupled with the current WHO recommendations are required to support the provision of prophylactic micronutrient powder with iron in order to improve anaemic and iron status among pre-school children in rural Ghana.


Iron Supplementation in Suckling Piglets: How to Correct Iron Deficiency Anemia without Affecting Plasma Hepcidin Levels
Monitoring of red blood cell indices, plasma iron parameters during a 28-day period after birth, following intramuscular administration of different concentrations of iron dextran to suckling piglets shows that plasma hepcidin-25 levels can guide optimal dosing of iron treatment and pave the way for mixed supplementation of piglets.
Treatment of anemia with microencapsulated ferrous fumarate plus ascorbic acid supplied as sprinkles to complementary (weaning) foods.
Use of ferrous sulfate drops or a single daily dose of microencapsulated ferrous fumarate sprinkles plus ascorbic acid resulted in a similar rate of successful treatment of anemia without side effects, the first demonstration of the use of micro Encapsulated iron sprinkles to treat anemia.
Benefits and risks of iron supplementation in anemic neonatal pigs.
It is demonstrated that a modified strategy for iron supplementation of newborn piglets with iron dextran improves the piglets' hematological status, attenuates the induction of hepcidin expression, and minimizes the toxicity of the administered iron.
Iron transporters are differentially regulated by dietary iron, and modifications are associated with changes in manganese metabolism in young pigs.
Fe deficiency in pigs increased gene expression of duodenal metal transporters and supplementation with H-Fe reduced expression of DMT1 and ZIP14, which may have decreased absorption of Mn.
Effect of iron-fortified foods on hematologic and biological outcomes: systematic review of randomized controlled trials.
Consumption of iron-fortified foods results in an improvement in hemoglobin, serum ferritin, and iron nutriture and a reduced risk of remaining anemic and iron deficient.

It would be timely to develop a range of iron bioavailability factors based not only on diet composition but also on subject characteristics, such as iron status and prevalence of obesity.
Toxicological effects of iron on intestinal cells
It is suggested that iron exerts its toxic effects intracellularly especially in preconfluent Caco‐2 cells, whereas only high iron doses were able to alter the viability of differentiating, enterocyte‐like cells.
Inorganic and organic trace mineral supplementation in weanling pig diets.
Feed intake and daily weight gain were not affected by treatments, however, piglets supplemented by trace minerals presented better gain:feed ratio and Trace mineral supplementation, regardless of level and source, improved the performance of piglets.
