X-ray diffraction analysis shows that polysaccharide-iron complexes have a ferrihydrite (β-FeOOH) structure that closely resembles the structure of ferritin, the natural intracellular protein that binds iron in duodenal cells.
The fact that the polydextrose-iron complex closely resembles endogenous carriers of iron could account for its high bioavailability and reduced side effects.
