  • You Ask, I Answer: Red Meat & Iron

    _d220328Is it necessary to [include] some red meat [in one's diet]?  Even just once a month to get iron?

    I often hear that the iron source best absorbed by our body is from red meat, so women, especially, need red meat.

    Is that true?

    Your question touches on a variety of issues.  Let’s take them one by one.

    It is true that heme iron (that from meat, poultry, and shellfish) is absorbed more efficiently by our bodies than non-heme iron (that in dairy, eggs, grains, nuts, seeds, and vegetables).  Consequently, vegetarians and vegans have higher iron requirements than their meat-eating counterparts.

    While all meat-based iron is highly absorbable, organ meats (like liver) have the highest absorption rate, followed by pork, beef, chicken, and fish.

    Non-meat-eaters can more easily meet their iron requirements by:

    • Abstaining from drinking coffee or tea with meals, as they strongly block iron absorption
    • Including foods/beverages rich in vitamin C in meals to enhance non-heme iron absorption
    • Consuming high-iron vegetarian foods (beans, nuts, seeds, fortified whole grain cereals) daily

      You said heme protein. Did you mean heme iron?

      Yes, that is what I meant. Thanks for catching that — have fixed it. The perils of blogging after midnight and being your own editor!
