Red dates are a good health care product, and what everyone values is its blood-tonifying effect. The purpose of eating red dates is to prevent iron deficiency anemia through iron supplementation. But iron is divided into two types, namely heme iron, and non-heme iron. The former mainly comes from animal liver, animal whole blood, animal meat, etc., with an absorption rate as high as about 20%; the latter mainly comes from plant foods such as red dates or dairy products, but the absorption rate is low, only 3%-5%. Therefore, the red dates can’t play a role in nourishing blood.
