Spinach is the favorite of green leafy vegetables, not because of iron supplement. But really like its taste. Usually buy the most is spinach. The size of the family also likes to eat. If spinach is directly washed and fried, it will have an astringent taste, which is acceptable to adults, and children may not be able to swallow it. That’s because spinach contains a lot of oxalic acid, which is easy to combine with calcium and other metal ions to form insoluble substances. Therefore, if you stir fry directly, it tastes bad and affects the absorption of minerals. You must blanch it with boiling water. Oxalic acid is soluble in water. After blanching, most of the oxalic acid can be removed. Another way is to add a little Baijiu to stir fry spinach, and spinach not only has no astringent taste, but also has a sense of fragrance. The main ingredient of Baijiu is ethanol, and the oxalic acid in spinach is esterified with ethanol in wine to form ester, while the ester has fragrance. But this is not recommended for children. Therefore, blanching before frying is the best way Spinach cannot be eaten with calcium tablets. Spinach is rich in oxalic acid. Oxalate ions are easy to form calcium oxalate precipitation after binding with calcium in the intestine, which not only hinders the absorption of calcium by the human body, but also easy to form stones.
