The daily intake of adequate amounts of iron is essential to avoid the most prevalent nutritional deficiency. This can be prevented by increasing iron intake via food fortification. The biggest iron fortification challenges in food processing are metallic taste and unpleasant gastro-intestinal tract side-effects. These disadvantages are successfully overcome by the use of AB-Fortis® microencapsulated iron.

In addition, the encapsulation protects oxidation- sensitive ingredients such as vitamins and fatty acids from interacting with iron.



This microencapsulated iron ingredient allows the fortification of foods with iron without changing the appearance, palatability or taste of these foods. AB-Fortis® is stable under high pressures and temperatures, therefore staying intact during processing. AB-Fortis® is highly bioavailable as shown by a recent human clinical study on bioavailability.


Manufacturing and Properties

AB-Fortis® is produced using a patented process, which provides highly stable encapsulation ensuring no release of free iron in the food matrix. The spherical gelation of ferric saccharate by calcium alginate results in a microencapsulated iron salt with a high (40%) content of iron.
