Iron - an essential mineral
Like all minerals, we need to take in iron through our food. Especially for people who eat no or very few animal products, it is advisable to keep an eye on their iron levels. Since iron from plant foods is less easily absorbed by the intestines, the daily iron intake of vegetarians and vegans is significantly lower than that of omnivores, i.e. people who eat both plant and animal foods. Therefore, vegetarians, vegans and all those who eat little animal food should make sure that they get enough iron.
