About Ferrazone

EU approval
 

Iron is an essential element for good health. Ferrazone is a highly effective iron source in food fortification to combat iron deficiency anemia. Ferric Sodium EDTA is recommended by the World Health Organization as the preferred iron fortificant for wheat and maize flour. Furthermore Ferrazone can be used in drinks without development of any metallic taste and has been accepted for food use in nearly all countries worldwide.

The main advantages of Ferrazone in food fortification are:

  • Completely water soluble
  • No metallic taste
  • No teeth staining
  • No digestive side effects
  • Virtually inert to almost all other food ingredients
  • High bioavailability: up to 2 to 4 times higher than other regular used iron sources

Applications

Ferrazone can be used in many food products, but it is primarily used to fortify foods that are stored in dry form such as powdered beverages, candy bars and flour. Examples of flour-derived products are bread, biscuits and instant noodles. Colored drinks and condiments, such as cola or soy sauce, and functional foods like fortified cereals or sport drinks are also good targets for iron fortification.

Ferrazone can also be used in iron containing food supplements under various forms (like syrups, sprays, tablets and powder sachets).
