A New Role for the Old Bean
Vegetarians, especially those who don’t love spinach, have a tough time getting enough iron. Once you drop red meat from your diet, there just aren’t many other foods that contain enough of the essential mineral. Luckily, a new study suggests that soybeans, a vegetarian staple, might well do the trick. While it’s long been known that soybeans contain iron, previous studies have suggested it wasn’t easily absorbed by the body. The new findings, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, give reason to believe that’s not true. Eighteen women ate soy-laced foods for 28 days and had their iron levels measured halfway through and again at 28 days.
The iron was chemically “tagged” so it could be traced in red blood cells. In the end, the average rate of absorption was 27 percent—much higher than the 5 or 10 percent achieved in previous studies. The reason? The subjects of the earlier studies were all men who had plenty of iron stored up, says Elizabeth Theil, a biochemistry professor at the Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute and lead author of the study. “These women were iron-deficient, which may have made the difference.” “If you’re a vegetarian, soybeans are the place to be,” Theil adds. They’re versatile—they can fill just about any role in a meal— and they contain more available iron than most vegetables.

University of St.Thomas Saint Paul
2260 Summit Avenue
Discover how you can play an active role in shaping the future by what you do within your organization and network with other health care leaders who are dealing with similar issues. The pace of change in health care has increased exponentially since our inaugural health care conference. And by the time the second annual conference convenes, Congress will have passed its bill for health care reform. We’ll have officially begun a new journey.Fortunately, visionary leaders have been helping to shape this next phase of health care. Investments in innovation and quality have led to some very effective – and often surprising – ways to cut costs, reduce errors, increase service and satisfaction, and improve access and outcomes. Bold initiatives such as these should be shared – especially during this transformative time, when we are all looking for fresh models of excellence. The University of St. Thomas and its partners invite you to participate in an inspiring day of learning, sharing and strategizing about how we can leverage innovation and quality to thrive in the new health care environment.
