Iron Absorption From Iron-enriched Aspergillus Oryzae

BIEFS
Start date: May 29, 2013
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Ferrous sulfate is rapidly absorbed and the bolus of iron enters blood rather quickly possibly leading to higher concentrations of non-transferrin bound iron which induces oxidative stress. The objective of this study was to determine how quickly iron enters into blood stream from the iron-enriched Asperigillus oryzae (AspironTM, ASP) in contrast to ferrous sulfate. Seventeen healthy, female subjects (18-35 y) were randomized, double blind, cross-over experimental design with three treatments: 10 mg iron as FeSO4 and ASP as well as 20 mg iron as ASP.
