Iron Hydroxide

Iron is an essential trace element required by all forms of life. In man it is required for the synthesis of heme proteins which function in the process of oxygen transport and oxidative metabolism. They include hemoglobin, myoglobin, the cytochromes as well as catalase and peroxides. Other enzyme systems such as succinic dehydrogenase, mitochondrial nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide hydrogen (NADH)-dehydrogenase and xanthine oxidase contain nonheme iron. In other enzyme systems, such as aconitase, iron is a cofactor. Iron occurs as a natural constituent of all foods of plant and animal origin and may also be present in drinking-water. In food, iron occurs in three forms, iron oxides, inorganic and organic salts, and organic complexes such as heme iron. The chemical form of iron is important in assessing its biological availability. In addition, food may be fortified with iron salts or elemental iron. Most of the iron in the diet of people living in the United States (US) is derived from meat and grain products.
