Cooking tips

Spinach contains an acid (oxalic) that inhibits the absorption of the iron and calcium contained in the leaf. However the vitamin C also contained in the leaf counters this effect, therefore cook as little as possible to maximise the vitamin C content.

If you are eating this raw always eat with some fat such as a salad dressing to enhance the absorption of the goodness which in this leaf is mainly fat soluble.
