Iron is another nutrient that new vegans and vegetarians are often concerned about. Fortunately, there are many excellent plant sources of iron. Our recently-updated article, Iron in the Vegan Diet, contains a list of the iron content of selected vegan foods, a comparison of iron sources, and some sample menus that provide more than the daily recommended amount of iron.
Iron in the Vegan Diet is excerpted from the newly released 5th Edition of Simply Vegan. For a limited time, we’re offering 50% off the cover price when you order 5 copies from our online bookstore. For more information about vegan nutrition, visit the Nutrition section of our website.
The Vegetarian Resource Group relies upon the generosity of our supporters. Please donate so we can continue to provide vital nutrition information like this.
