What you shouldn't eat meat with and why: the answer of experts
Meat is an essential component of every person's diet, which is one of the sources of protein (15-20%), minerals (content ranges from 0.8 to 1.6%), mainly potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc and copper phosphates, as well as iron.
The FoodOboz editorial team shares useful information from experts on what foods you shouldn't eat meat with and why.
What not to eat meat with
Experts do not recommend eating bread, potatoes, corn, and pasta with meat dishes, as meat is less digestible with starchy foods. Meat is best eaten with fresh vegetables and herbs, as well as legumes.
It's also important to know that meat dishes should not be eaten with dairy products, as the calcium contained in dairy products impairs the absorption of iron in meat by an average of 50-60%.
What to drink with meat
Endocrinologists recommend drinking meat with a glass of water or citrus juice instead of tea or coffee. The latter contain the polyphenol tannin, which reduces the absorption of iron.
