- A Different Slant On Sustainability: More Nutrition Per Acre From Plants! Wood, Marcia // Agricultural Research;Sep2009, Vol. 57 Issue 8, p6
The article discusses studies on the compounds in food that can increase or decrease nutrient absorption of the body. One study pointed a culprit in decreasing iron absorption from red and pinto beans as a polyphenol called kaempferol which is also an antioxidant. Laboratory tests also showed...
- 13. Iron: 13.2 Iron metabolism and absorption. // Vitamin & Mineral Requirements in Human Nutrition;2004, p246
Chapter 13.2 of the book "Vitamin & Mineral Requirements in Human Nutrition" is presented. The chapter focuses on metabolism of iron and its absorption in the body. Iron is not usually excreted from the body through urine. Humid climate heightens loss of iron in sweat. ON the other hand, studies...
- kiwifruit: the perfect food. Wolber, Fran // New Zealand Science Teacher;2012, Issue 130, p16
The article focuses on a series of studies conducted by researchers at Massey University concerning the health benefits associated with eating traditional exported kiwifruits from New Zealand. It says that the research started by identifying the effect of kiwifruit on the body's ability to...
- Estimation of Dietary Iron Bioavailability from Food Iron Intake and Iron Status. Dainty, Jack R.; Berry, Rachel; Lynch, Sean R.; Harvey, Linda J.; Fairweather-Tait, Susan J. // PLoS ONE;Oct2014, Vol. 9 Issue 10, p1
Currently there are no satisfactory methods for estimating dietary iron absorption (bioavailability) at a population level, but this is essential for deriving dietary reference values using the factorial approach. The aim of this work was to develop a novel approach for estimating dietary iron...
- Inhibition of iron absorption by polyphenols as an anti-cancer mechanism. Mascitelli, L.; Goldstein, M.R. // QJM: An International Journal of Medicine;May2011, Vol. 104 Issue 5, p459

- Iron metabolism in infants and children. Lönnerdal, Bo; Kelleher, Shannon L. // Food & Nutrition Bulletin;Dec2007 Supplement, Vol. 28 Issue 4, pS491
Meeting the iron requirements of infants and children is difficult, and supplementation or fortification of food with iron is often recommended. Although iron supplementation of infants and children with iron deficiency and iron-deficiency anemia may be beneficial, recent studies suggest that...
- Iron Bioavailability of Rats Fed Liver, Lentil, Spinach and their Mixtures. Rewashdeh, Abdullah Y.; El-Qudah, Jafar M.; Al-Dmoor, Hanee; Al-Qudah, Maisa M.; Mamkagh, Amer M.; Tarawneh, Khaled A.; Hawari, Azmi D.; Dababneh, Basem F.; Al-Bakheit, Alaa A.; Haddad, Moawya A. // Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences;2009, Vol. 12 Issue 4, p367
To study the effects of dietary iron source (basal diet-FeSO4.TH2O, liver, lentil, spinach, liver + lentil, liver+spinach and lentil+spinach) on iron bioavailability, fifty-six Albino Sprague Dawley derived male 21 days old rats were fed on iron-deficient diet (7.8 mg Fe kg-1 diet) and the...
