In this study, Ferrochel® (ferrous bisglycinate chelate) from Albion was seen to be highly soluble with a greater degree of ferrous dialyzable iron than ferrous gluconate  of ferrous sulfate,  when used to fortify pasteurized and UHT milk. Others that compared favorably were iron pyrophosphate and ferrous lactate. However, in commercial liquid pasteurized milk and UHT milk ferrous lactate proved no better than ferrous sulfate. The researchers concluded that the formation of ferrous dialyzable iron may determine the success and effectiveness of iron fortification of milk.
