Zinc in a Vegetarian

Zinc is an essential element in any healthy vegetarian diet plan. Zinc is important for skin and a healthy immune system, as well as resistance to infection. Studies show that vegetarian diets often contain less zinc than meat-diets, so vegetarians need to eat plenty of foods that are rich in zinc.

Sources of Zinc in a Vegetarian

Good sources of zinc for vegetarians include: dairy products, eggs, lentils, beans, nuts, seeds (esp. pumpkin seeds!!), brewer's yeast, green vegetables, wheatgerm and whole grain cereals.
Note: Only about 20 percent of dietary zinc is actually absorbed by the body.

Zinc Uptake in a Vegetarian

MINUS. Dietary fiber and phytic acid, found in bran, pulses and nuts, inhibit zinc absorption.
