Iron In Parsley & Other Seasonings

Many herbs, spices, and seasonings have a decent iron content, however it is crucial to consider the amount you are actually consuming. Many of us use small amounts of these items. Another issue to keep in mind is that many foods like these have iron inhibitors. You will not benefit from the entire iron content of the food itself. By and large, we use seasonings, herbs, and spices to bring rich flavor to food, not so much for the iron.
