  • SummaryBackgroundBioavailability data in humans of elemental iron powders is limited although elemental iron is a common form of iron when used as a fortificant.Aim of the studyThe relative bioavailability (RBV) of seven elemental iron powders, five commercially available and two developmental are evaluated. In addition, one commercial electrolytic iron powder given with ascorbic acid (AA) was examined.MethodsBased on a validated method this double–blinded randomized crossover study included… CONTINUE READING
