Is spinach high in iron?
Not really. You would need to eat more than half a kilogram of spinach to cover the recommended daily intake of iron.
Fresh, uncooked Spinach has 2.7 mg of iron per 3.5 ounces based on the USDA's nutrient data, which is equivalent to 15% of the reference daily value for iron. This is non-heme iron, which is not absorbed as well as the heme iron found in animal-based products.
