Iron

Iron Iron is found widely in the diet, but there are many factors that affect its absorption. Haem iron, found in meat, is well absorbed whereas non‐haem iron absorption is variable, and affected by many other components in the diet. Requirements for iron are highest in women, and during infancy and adolescence. Intakes of iron in the UK are generally within the range of iron reference values; however, a sub‐group of women with particularly high requirements may benefit from supplements. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Nutrition & Food Science Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Iron is found widely in the diet, but there are many factors that affect its absorption. Haem iron, found in meat, is well absorbed whereas non‐haem iron absorption is variable, and affected by many other components in the diet. Requirements for iron are highest in women, and during infancy and adolescence. Intakes of iron in the UK are generally within the range of iron reference values; however, a sub‐group of women with particularly high requirements may benefit from supplements.
