Nutritional Applications

Nutritional Applications in the arena of flour / food fortification, iron salts and pharmaceuticals demand the best of iron powders with unsurpassed quality, stability, and safety. Thanks to the cost effective process backed up by 40 years of research and development activities, Industrial Metal Powder (I) Pvt. Ltd. offers ‘Electro-Fine’, an enhanced electrolytic iron powder for food supplements, vitamin fortification, and replenishment.

Food fortification

World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended only the usage of electrolytic iron powder amongst all elemental iron powders in food fortification. With excellent bio availability, high surface area, long shelf life, better dissolution rate, and optimum particle size distribution, our electrolytic iron powder is the best solution for food fortification and other nutritional Applications. Moreover, our electrolytic iron powder does not change color, taste, and odor of the premix material and hence it is being gladly accepted by food industries across the globe. Products where long shelf life is needed EIP is the only option.

Ferrous salts

For production of high purity ferrous salts, our high purity electrolytic iron powder forms the first reference materials for manufacturers involved in the production of ferrous salts such as sulfate, fumarate, choride, and gluconate. Available in 100 mesh size to extra fine grades (2-3 microns), it is the most cost effective solution for industries who seek products that meet FCC and FSSAI standards. As the world moves towards higher purity.

We all know that flour is the staple diet in more than 180 countries worldwide since several people do not have access to divers’ food supplements, flour is the cheapest and best source of diet and the best mode for vitamin fortification or replenishment. Also while milling, flour loses most of its vitamins and nutritional value.

Particle Size, Shape and surface area

Electro - Fine has very fine particle as you can see from the adjoining table also the excellent particle shape and high surface area contribute to better dissolution rate and higher RBV.

Cost Effective

Electrolytic iron ‘Electro - Fine’ is a premium product, however IMP has been able to offer this premium product at extremely competitive prices to benefit the premix compliance in making the premix cost effective, the flour millers in making their burden of flour cost lower and friendly the consumers who is getting and well enriched product at affordable costs.

  • Ask for the COA (AND INVOICE OR CERTIFIED COPY TO ASCERTAIN THE SUPPLY) of the supplier for the elemental iron supply.
Advantage of Electro-fine in Flour
  • Flour Quality & Organoleptic Changes: “Electro - Fine electrolytic iron powder MOA is stable and safe as it does not affect the quality of the flour by reacting in diverse climatic conditions like heat and humidity.
  • Color & Taste: Being a stable product ‘Electro - Fine does not show any adverse effects when mixed with the flour.
  • Higher Shelf Life: - ‘Electro-Fine’ enriched flour have a good shelf life especially in conditions where storage and usage of flour are a matter of concern.
