Taking The Iron Out of My Food

  • Published on Dec 31, 2021
  • I show you how to remove iron from your food and why you are probably getting less iron than you think when you eat iron fortified food.

    Note: Magnetically attracted Iron forms are Fe and Fe+3.
    Fe+3 and Fe both can't get absorbed in the intestines.
    Fe+2 however can be transported by Divalent Metal Transporter (DMT-1).
    So, body secretes Duodenal Cytochrome-B.
    That converts Fe+3 into Fe+2.
    Also the food companies are not cheating they are just making use of Oral Bioavailability and the Iron requirement fulfillment even in Malnourished.
    This occurs as body itself removes the excess iron from the Intestinal cells.
    Normal Blood Fe level is pretty low and different very much for both males and females.
    Most of Body's iron is either in Haemoglobin or in Storage forms like Ferritin and Hemosiderin.

    Cool video, loving the content man ! Unfortunately the metallic iron and other metals in the same form don’t just pass through us, these things cause serious problems like cognitive decline /impairment and very possibly Alzheimer’s. Although there isn’t a direct link between metals like aluminum and Alzheimer’s, what they find very often during the autopsy of an Alzheimer’s victim is a large deposit of aluminum in the brain. Do with that what you will

    The iron comes from the wheat. It is naturally inside it. I was an electromecanic at a food plant. We had big magnets inside the input pipes to get most of the iron out of the flour tank. We had to remove it from time to time.

I can't even remember how old I was when they teached us this, it's like basic nutrition knowledgde lol I think it's basic knowledge all around the world tbh. Iron, Zync, Potassium, etc, are all minerals you have to eat and companies HAVE to put some quantitie of them in your food, because naturally there wouldn't have so much minerals in these foods.

    Dude, that's polluting food.
    I guess you have weak food and safety regulations in the US.
    In the EU countries, only natural iron in foods, is allowed.
    In the case of iron as an additive, it is only allowed as iron oxides and hydroxides, and only specifically for MARKING of citrus fruits (today almost all producers and importers/distributers use attached labels instead).
    However, I noticed that iron in another form was allowed as an anti-caking agent additive to salt. I am not sure to what degree this form of iron is metallic (it's a metal-organic complex and it's said to be "reduced paramagnetic"): Iron (III) meso-Tartrate (E534).
    I'm assuming that it's stable enough so that you cannot pull out (and magnetize) the iron out of the compound by a magnet...

    “You need ionic iron.” Thank you so much for finding the word I’ve been trying to tell people for years. Your body has no use of metallic iron, it needs iron of another form to use.

      @Robert well whatever reason people have or source they consider, many believe red meat is not healthy and want to eat iron from other sources.
      Personally I feel vegetarians have existed thousands of years and we've been just fine. If I really required red meat I'd be dead by now. Yet I'm much healthier now. Plenty of people exercise and drop dead from heart attacks. @thecarnivorekid recently had heart surgery and was very lucky. Excerise isn't everything although it's important. My grandfather had a heart attack very young when my parents were just kids. It's important for me to keep my heart healthy and eat a healthy plant based diet (:

    having worked in a mill that's not an additive that's from the processing equipment. Everything passes through dozens of big neodymium or electromagnets but inevitably a very small amount of filings make it through, usually because its encapsulated in whatever you're making. trust me, this is nothing compared to how much iron you'll catch with the magnets. the USDA standard is literally "Does your filter pad look as bad as our standardized pad?" And you'll also do an assay to prove there isn't too much iron in it

      @Professional dumbass no i dont think steel is organic iron, I was just using that to make a distinction.
      An example of organic iron would be heme, the iron in your blood that carries oxygen.
      I knew I shouldn't have said that, I knew you would get confused you seem very confused about a lot of things.
      Like the meaning of the word organic.
      having carbon atoms in the molecular structure is literally the definition of organic in chemistry.

    Added to this from another TheXvid shorts. Lots of times a blade of some sort that cuts through food or ingredients passes on micro metal chips that aren’t visible to the eye unless microscoped. So on a lately basis, we consume micro metallic chippings.
