FeraMAX® 150 is an oral iron supplement formulated with polysaccharides in a stable complex. It is manufactured by a specialized process whereby the iron is coated with polysaccharides (starches/sugars). This coating allows the iron to pass through the stomach relatively intact where it is absorbed through the small intestine and is then delivered to the bloodstream.
It is a dark brown powder which, when dissolved in water forms a very dark brown solution.
It is virtually tasteless and odorless.
It is an organic complex and contains no free ions, also described as being non-ionic.
Due to the polysaccharide coating (matrix) it is electrically neutral.
