Vegetarian food containing iron

Iron rich food

Where is iron got from?

Iron can be mainly obtained from animal food. Liver is the best animal food containing iron (chicken, veal, pork, turkey, lamb, etc). Patés are made from liver and they are one of the best sources of this mineral.

Red meat is also a good iron provider (especially beef, turkey, pork) but seafood is even better (squid, mussels, clams, prawns, shrimps, prawns, lobsters, oysters, snails, etc.)

However, vegetarian people can get it from plant foods. The following table shows a list of the main plant food containing iron.
