Iron and the effects of cooking and charring food.
« on: February 07, 2018, 05:21:11 am »
After watching these videos it got me wondering about the iron in our food. I.e. the iron in cooked foods vs raw foods vs charred foods. A lot of people on this forum are concerned with AGES in food but it seems like there is a lot more to it then just that. If charring food can change the properties of the iron like is implied by the 2nd video, what else besides affecting the AGES does it do?

Absolute proof that Wheaties contains metal fragments, lifted with magnets (Is it?)

For the Wheaties, rather than there being 'metal shards' in the cereal what is probably going on is that recipe was fortified with a nutritional powder that contained iron. The iron probably became ferromagnetized during the baking process, much like it did in when match heads in the second video were burned.
