Does durum semolina pasta naturally contain iron? I'm worried because my new pasta doesn't say enriched, and no nutrients are listed.

Does durum semolina pasta naturally contain iron? I'm worried because my new pasta doesn't say enriched, and no nutrients are listed.

Minimal; however...: Wheat does have a bit of iron, but it is not well-absorbed. However, many foods are rich in iron including animal foods, beans and greens. No one should rely on pasta as their main source of iron. It is rare for men to be deficient in iron; too much iron is more likely to be a problem for men, increasing risk of see http://www.Whfoods.Com/genpage.Php?Tname=nutrient&dbid=70 for more info. ...Read more

Seb der: Unfortunately there is no test to find out if a food is triggering your hair loss or the seborrhea. To my knowledge there is no known connection. About the best you can do is to log a food diary in order to verify an association by trial and error. Alternative you could explore other causes of hair loss. ...Read more

Balance your diet: Your diet is out of balance which is probably why you are not feeling your,best. While protein is known to be the energy food, if not eaten in balance,with carbs your weight loss and health will suffer. It will also make your eating plan more difficult to stay with. Try adding some whole grains and fruit into your diet in moderation and see if things get better. Don't drink too much caffeine. ...Read more

We know that soy product contain pythic acid. Is it really safe to take isolated soy protein (amway, shaklee, ..) while breastfeeding?"

Phytic r folic acid?: Folic acid is strongly recommended before and during pregnancy to prevent neural defects like spina bifida. Phytic acid should probably be avoided during pregnancy & breastfeeding as it can chelate (bind to) important minerals like iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc & make them unabsorbable, leading to potential mineral deficiencies.
