Healthy Food Tip

What is the max amount of time that I can boil oxalate-containing foods to remove some of the oxalates and still retain most of the nutrients.

We recommend boiling spinach and Swiss chard to free up acids and allow them to leach into the boiling water. Discard the boiling water after cooking; do not drink it or use it for stock because of its acid content.

Spinach: Use a large pot (3 quart) with lots of water and bring to a rapid boil. Add spinach to the boiling water and boil for 1 minute. Begin timing as soon as you place the spinach in the pot if you are using 1 pound or less of spinach. If you are cooking larger quantities of spinach bring the water back to a boil before beginning timing the 1 minute. Do not cover the pot when cooking spinach. Leaving the pot uncovered helps to release more of the acids with the rising steam. Research has shown that the boiling of spinach in large amounts of water helps decrease the oxalic acid content by as much as 50%. Remove spinach from pot, press out liquid with a fork, place in a bowl, toss with our Mediterranean Dressing, and top with your favorite optional ingredients. For details see our 1-Minute Spinach recipe.

Swiss chard: Use a large pot (3 quart) with lots of water and bring to a rapid boil. Add chard to the boiling water. If stems are more than 1-inch wide, cook them for 2 minutes before adding the leaves. If less than 1 inch in width you can boil the leaves and stems together for 3 minutes. Begin timing as soon as you place the chard in the pot if you are using 1 pound or less of chard. If you are cooking large quantities of chard bring the water back to a boil before beginning timing the 3 minutes. Do not cover the pot when cooking chard. Leaving the pot uncovered helps to release more of the acids with the rising steam. For details, see our 3 minute Swiss chard recipe

Healthy Food Tip

Why is it that iron, and calcium are considered nutrients that cancel one another out, but actually occur in high content, together, in leafy greens?

Studies on human subjects have shown that calcium can inhibit iron absorption, regardless of whether calcium is consumed in the form of a supplement or as a part of the food matrix. Importantly, research studies don’t show significant changes in indicators of iron status in individuals with high calcium intakes over long periods of time. Therefore, the inhibitory effect on iron absorption may be of short duration and/or there are likely mechanisms in place that allow the body to conserve iron stores or compensate for this interaction.

The mechanism for the inhibitory effect of calcium on iron absorption is not completely understood. Some research suggests the interaction is an intestinal absorption event that occurs at the cellular membrane level; however, it is also possible that the inhibition occurs during iron transfer into circulation.

Healthy Food Tip

What does it mean to be healthy?

The dictionary defines health as the state of being free from illness, disease or injury. The World Health Organization defines health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

Here at the World’s Healthiest Foods our focus is on educating our readers how food and nutrition are essential for good physical health. Food is the key to life. It is the source of energy and essential nutrients that are required to sustain our bodies and prevent disease.

The word nutrition comes from a Latin root nutr-, which means to nurture or nourish. Nourishment is that which sustains life. Therefore, the science of human nutrition focuses on nourishing human life. From the moment of conception until death the body needs energy and nutrients to carry out vital functions such as breathing, digestion, metabolism, and every other physiological process in the body. Nutrition is thus the study of food; its nutritional components; the nutrient requirements of humans; and the means by which humans can maintain health and prevent disease through optimal nourishment from a healthy diet.
