So, what is gluconate de fer?

Gluconate de fer is a food ingredient commonly used as a mineral supplement and as a food additive. It is a form of iron that is easily absorbed by the body and is often added to processed foods such as bread, cereal, and pasta to fortify them with this essential mineral. Gluconate de fer is also used in the production of infant formulas and nutritional supplements due to its bioavailability and low toxicity. Its mild taste and odor make it a popular choice in food manufacturing, and it is often used in combination with other vitamins and minerals to create a well-balanced nutritional profile.
