Primary OutcomePresence/frequency of iron-derived side effects (subjective evaluation)
Secondary Outcome1. Rate of intake and continuation of research food 2. Hematology, blood biochemistry, and physiology tests (serum iron, erythrocytes, hemoglobin, ferritin, total iron binding capacity, liver function values, etc.) 3. Quality of life 4. Other safety-related items(changes in laboratory values, adverse events, occurrence of side effects,etc.)
