Opinion on Safety or Efficiency of Ferrous Sulfate Monohydrate

Published on 03/07,2018

Iron is an essential trace element. As a constituent of haemoglobin, it is involved in oxygen transport. Iron is an electron carrier and plays a functional role in proteins involved in oxidative phosphorylation. Ferrous sulphate monohydrate is safe when supplied up to a maximum iron content per kilogram complete feedingstuff of 450 mg for bovines and poultry, 500 mg for ovines, 600 mg for pets, and 750 mg for other species/categories, except horses and fish; for piglets up to one week before weaning a daily maximum dose of 250 mg Fe is considered safe. However, there is no evidence that the use of ferrous sulphate monohydrate would change the iron concentration in edible tissues and products of animal origin. Ferrous sulphate monohydrate is an effective source of iron for all animal species and categories. Ferrous sulphate monohydrate is irritant and corrosive to the skin, eyes and respiratory tract. The additive contains up to 109 mg Ni/kg. Nickel is a dermal and respiratory sensitiser, and inhalation may cause lung cancer. Thus, handling the additive poses a risk to the user/worker. However, considering the high background concentration of iron and sulphur in soil and water, the supplementation of feed with ferrous sulphate monohydrate is not expected to pose an environmental risk.
