The effects of different polyphenol-containing beverages on Fe absorption from a bread meal were estimated in adult human subjects from the erythrocyte incorporation of radio-Fe. The test beverages contained different polyphenol structures and were rich in either phenolic acids (chlorogenic acid in coffee), monomeric flavonoids (herb teas, camomile (Matricaria recutita L.)), vervain (Verbena officinalis L.), lime flower (Tilia cordata Mill.), pennyroyal (Mentha pulegium L.) and peppermint… 
Green tea or rosemary extract added to foods reduces nonheme-iron absorption.
TLDR
Phenolic-rich extracts used as antioxidants in foods reduce the utilization of dietary iron in young women by decreasing nonheme-iron absorption.
Iron bioavailability in fortified fruit beverages using ferritin synthesis by Caco-2 cells.
TLDR
From a nutritional point of view, individuals in need of optimal iron absorption may choose dairy samples to ensure optimal iron bioavailability and the presence of caseinophosphopeptides derived from casein hydrolysis during digestion may confer enhancing effects on iron absorption in samples with milk added with respect to nonadded samples.
Phenolic content of some beverages and in-vitro phenolic availability from composite diets
This study evaluated the effect of wine, fruit juice and convenient drinks on in-vitro availability of phenolics from rice and cowpea composite diets. The pH and titratable acidity of the drinks were
The effect of a natural polyphenol supplement on iron absorption in adults with hereditary hemochromatosis
TLDR
The results indicate that when taken with meals, this natural PPS can decrease dietary iron absorption, and might thereby reduce body iron accumulation and the frequency of phlebotomy in patients with HH.
Chili, but not turmeric, inhibits iron absorption in young women from an iron-fortified composite meal.
TLDR
It is concluded that both phenol quality and quantity determine the inhibitory effect of phenolic compounds on iron absorption.
Sodium iron EDTA and ascorbic acid, but not polyphenol oxidase treatment, counteract the strong inhibitory effect of polyphenols from brown sorghum on the absorption of fortification iron in young women
TLDR
It is suggested that PP from brown sorghum contribute to low Fe bioavailability from Sorghum foods and that AA and, to a lesser extent, NaFeEDTA, but not laccase have the potential to overcome the inhibitory effect of PP and improve Fe absorption from sorghums foods.
Inhibitory effects of spices and herbs on iron availability
TLDR
It is demonstrated that culinary spices and herbs can play an important role in iron nutrition by reducing iron availability in a dose-dependent manner—with the exception of tamarind, which at 11 mg polyphenol per meal enhanced iron availability.
Proline-rich proteins moderate the inhibitory effect of tea on iron absorption in rats.
TLDR
The results suggest that PRPs, whether from salivary glands or diet, can protect against the inhibition of iron absorption by tea.

Dose-dependent inhibitory effect of phenolic compounds in foods on nonheme-iron absorption in men.
TLDR
The study illustrates the marked effect of iron-binding phenolic compounds on iron nutrition and, thus, the importance of acquiring knowledge of the content of such compounds in different foods.
Ascorbic acid prevents the dose-dependent inhibitory effects of polyphenols and phytates on nonheme-iron absorption.
TLDR
It may be possible to predict the bioavailability of iron in a diet if due account is taken of the relative content in the diet of the major promoters and inhibitors of iron absorption.
Effect of different drinks on the absorption of non-heme iron from composite meals.
TLDR
It is clearly shows that the choice of drink drunk with a meal can markedly affect the absorption of non-heme iron.
The effects of organic acids, phytates and polyphenols on the absorption of iron from vegetables
TLDR
The major relevance of these findings is the fact that the total absorption of non-haem-Fe from a mixed diet may be profoundly influenced by the presence of single vegetables with either marked enhancing or inhibiting effects on Fe bioavailability.
Iron absorption and phenolic compounds: importance of different phenolic structures.
TLDR
The content of iron-binding galloyl groups might be a major determinant of the inhibitory effect of phenolic compounds on iron absorption from the diet, whereas the phenolic catechol groups seem to be of minor importance.
Factors affecting the absorption of iron from cereals
TLDR
Non-haem-iron absorption from a variety of cereal and fibre meals was measured in parous Indian women, using the erythrocyte utilization of radioactive Fe method to establish whether alteration of the phytate and polyphenol contents of sorghum affected Fe absorption from Sorghum meals, and to assess the influence of fibre on Fe absorption.
Inhibition of food iron absorption by coffee.
TLDR
Two dual isotope studies performed in iron replete human subjects demonstrate that coffee inhibits iron absorption in a concentration-dependent fashion.
The effect of red and white wines on nonheme-iron absorption in humans.
TLDR
The findings indicate that the inhibitory effect of phenolic compounds in red wine is unlikely to affect iron balance significantly.
The effect of tea on iron absorption.
TLDR
Drinking tannin-containing beverages such as tea with meals may contribute to the pathogenesis of iron deficiency if the diet consists largely of vegetable foodstuffs.
Assessment of the role of nonheme-iron availability in iron balance.
TLDR
The results indicate that in the context of a varied Western diet, nonheme-iron bioavailability is less important than absorption studies with single meals would suggest.
