Tips to get the most iron out of your food: Eat iron-rich foods along with foods that contain vitamin C Tea and coffee contains compounds called polyphenols, which can bind with iron making it harder for our bodies to absorb it. Calcium also hinders the absorption of iron; avoid high-calcium foods for a half hour before or after eating iron-rich foods.
