Abstract

Iron from FeCl2, FeSO4, and FeNTA were the best retained from both milk diets. FeCit had a significantly lower iron retention than all other groups in either diet and is probably not an effective chelate for delivering iron in milk diets. FeEDTA was better retained from the human milk diet, while FeLb was better retained from the evaporated milk diet. These differences may be related to different mechanisms of iron absorption.
