Form of Zinc

There are many zinc compounds that can be used to produce zinc supplements. They differ in color (from colorless, to white, grey, or yellowish white), taste (bitter, astringent, slightly sour, or bitter), odour (odourless, vanilla odour, or faint odour of acetic acid), solubility in water (insoluble, slightly soluble, or soluble), cost, side-effects, and safety. Water-soluble compounds (e.g., zinc acetate, zinc sulfate, and zinc gluconate) are more easily absorbed and therefore preferred. Zinc supplements have been prepared in flavored syrups, chewable tablets, single-dose 'sachets' to be added to food, as a high-fat spread to be consumed alone or with other food for infants and young children, and as dry supplements (tablets, capsules, or powders) alone or with other nutrients. The choice of supplement form will depend on the age of the target group, preference, and whether other nutrients will be included.
