Is there much iron in venison?

Answer:

Venison is a rich source of protein, niacin, iron , B1, B2, B6, B12, copper and zinc. It is lower in calories, cholesterol and fat than most cuts of meat. A 3oz serving of venison contains: niacin/vitamin B3 (5.7mg), potassium (330mg), phosphorus (201mg), iron (2.92mg), selenium (10mcg) and zinc (4.2mg).(USDA) There are forms of dietary iron heme and nonheme. Heme is derived from hemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that delivers oxygen to cells. Heme iron is found in animal foods that originally contained hemoglobin, such as red meats, fish and poultry. Iron in plant foods such as lentils and beans is arranged in a chemical structure called nonheme iron. It is also found in iron-enriched and iron-fortified foods. Hem iron is absorbed better than nonheme iron, but most dietary iron is nonheme iron. Best heme iron: Chicken livers, cooked 3 1/2 oz 12.8mg oysters breaded/fried 64.5mg Beef, chuck, lean braised 3oz3.2mg Best nonheme iron: Ready to eat cereal, 100% ffortified, 3/4 cup18mg Oatmeal, instant, fortified, prepared with water, 1 cup.10mg Soybeans 1 cup boiled.8.8mg Lentils, boiled, 1 cup.6.6 Beans 1 cup.4.5-5.2mg Vitamin A helps mobilize iron from its storage sites, so a deficiency of vitamin A limits the body's ability to use stored iron. Meat proteins and vitamin C will improve the absorption of nonheme iron. Tannins (found in tea) and calcium can decrease absorption of nonheme iron.
all red meat contians iron, liver is an excellent source of iron beef, venison, ect beets, egg yolks,lettuce, peanuts,dates. take an iron supplement vitamin.
I think they take the bullets out!
