OK Nutrition Gurus....can you clarify what's going on here??
I was perusing my old copy of Joy of Cooking (Copyright 1975...!) and I discovered the following statement: "About Spinach: One of the more controversial greens, this is believed---with some scientific justification--to inhibit the body's absorption of calcium. It is also the most delectable of greens. We recommend throwing caution to the winds and enjoying it in moderation."
True or False? How does today's Nutrition knowledge view spinach in light of calcium absorption? I know the Spark Nutrition article on 15 Ways to Increase Your Calcium states that "one cup of spinach contains almost 250 milligrams of calcium" ....so does that Calcium get absorbed OK? Also, does this have anything to do with why spinach is on the lists of foods to limit if you have gout...?
I will look forward to finding out more!! Thanks,
