yes palak {spinach} is very rich in iron as everyone knows. but the truth is In reality, a 60 gram serving of boiled spinach contains around 1.9 mg of iron (slightly more when eaten raw).spinach contains high levels of oxalate.Spinach still has a large nutritional value, especially when fresh, steamed, or quickly boiled. It is a rich source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, magnesium, and several vital antioxidants. Recently, opioid peptides called rubiscolins have also been found in spinach. It is a source of folic acid, and this vitamin was first purified from spinach. To benefit from the folate in spinach, it is better to steam it than to boil it. Boiling spinach for four minutes can halve the level of folate.
