So, what is iron caseinate?

Iron caseinate is a food ingredient made by combining iron with casein, a protein found in milk. This combination results in a powder that is easily soluble in water and has a neutral taste. Iron caseinate is often used as a source of iron in food products such as breakfast cereals, energy bars, and protein shakes. It is an excellent source of bioavailable iron, which is important for healthy blood and immune function. Iron caseinate is also commonly used in the food industry as a stabilizer, thickener, and emulsifier. Its versatility and nutritional benefits make it a popular choice in many food formulations.
