“The major challenge lies in finding a compound that can solve this balancing act. Nestlé and Chalmers began discussing this a few years ago, which led to Nestlé Research developing a new compound containing monoferric phytate (Fe-PA),” says Ann-Sofie Sandberg, Professor of Food Science at Chalmers University of Technology. For 30 years, Ann-Sofie Sandberg has led research in the areas of phytates and iron bioavailability, through human studies, and animal and intestinal cell models, with the aim of improving possibilities for iron uptake and reducing the risks associated with iron deficiency.
