1. An iron (III) carboxymaltodextrin complex wherein said iron (III) carboxymaltodextrin complex comprises polynuclear iron (III)-hydroxide 4(R)-(poly-(1→

  • 4)-O-α

    -D-glucopyranosyl)-oxy-2(R),3(S),5(R),6-tetrahydroxy-hexanoate and has a weight average molecular weight in the range of from 80 kDa to 400 kDa, and wherein said 4(R)-(poly-(1→


    -D-glucopyranosyl)-oxy-2(R),3(S),5(R),6-tetrahydroxy-hexanoate is derived from the oxidation of maltodextrin, wherein when one maltodextrin is applied its dextrose equivalent lies between 5 and 20, and when a mixture of several maltodextrins is applied, the dextrose equivalent of the mixture lies between 5 and 20 and the dextrose equivalent of each individual maltodextrins contained in the mixture lies between 2 and 40.
