The iron ingredient SunActive Fe[tm] received the NutrAward for Best New Product at this year's Nutracon/ Natural Products Expo. Iron is an essential nutrient that transports oxygen to the brain and muscles. Many iron sources that exhibit the best bioavailability adversely affect product quality by accelerating lipid oxidation, producing unfavorable color or flavor and causing severe irritation of the gastrointestinal system. This novel ferric pyrophosphate compound can be used to fortify foods, beverages and supplements. It remains in suspension in liquid products, is stable against heat, salt, pH and oxidation, has no iron flavor or change in color, no gastric toxicity or irritation and superior absorption and bioavailability.
