According to scientific evidence, one ounce serving of dark chocolate contains 19 percent of the US RDA for iron. Yet an ounce of beer sirloin only contains 3 percent!
USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard reference shows: Chocolate, dark, 70-85 percent cacao solids, value per 100 grams is 11.90 milligrams of iron. While beef, bottom sirloin, tri-tip roast, separable lean and fat, trimmed to 0” fat, all grades, cooked, roasted, value per 100 grams is just 1.66 milligrams of iron!
This states that dark chocolate does contain more iron than some cuts of beef, and not just a little more. We are not suggesting you to use dark chocolate as a primary source of iron. Chocolate bars can contain 27 grams of saturated fat, and that’s way too high to eat in a day.
Therefore, best think you can do is combining these two!Make sure you eat your beef sirloin and have a little piece of dark chocolate as a dessert afterwards.
