Absorption of iron from maize (Zea mays L.) and soya beans (Glycine hispida Max.) in Jamaican infants


, : Absorption of iron from maize (Zea mays L.) and soya beans (Glycine hispida Max.) in Jamaican infants. British Journal of Nutrition 29(2): 269-278

The absorption of Fe from maize and soya bean preparations labelled with 59Fe was estimated by whole-body counting in 42 apparently healthy Jamaican infants and compared with the absorption of ferrous ascorbate. The mean absorption of Fe from maize was 4.3% and from soya beans baked at 300 deg C, 0.4%, compared with 28.5% for ferrous ascorbate. In a group of children given boiled soya beans the mean absorption of Fe was 2.8 and of ferrous ascorbate 16.7%.
