Spinach tofu has always been a dish that my family often eats. When I was a child, the vegetables were far less abundant. Spinach and tofu were both common and cheap. I often fry or stew the two cheap and delicious dishes. I love it so far. One of the dishes. But I did not expect that there is a saying everywhere in these years: spinach and tofu can not be eaten together, it will cause stones! And almost everyone is convinced of this. This made me quite depressed. I went from snacks to big, and the one that I loved so much was so ruined! Unwillingly, I was particularly concerned about finding the source of this statement. In addition to the folk word of mouth, such statements basically appear in the network, reprinted everywhere, reposted everywhere, but no one knows who said it, who made the research, who reached the conclusion. In addition to these thousand consistent statements, there is no real and convincing evidence. Until I saw Fan Zhihong's article about spinach tofu, I finally relieved myself. I know that I can safely eat my spinach stewed tofu. I don't have to worry about stones and insoluble calcium oxalate. Moreover, spinach and tofu treated with oxalic acid are actually a very good calcium supplement combination. I finally know why I have been picking up and eating since I was a child. I am still a tall man and a big body. It seems that the credit of spinach tofu is not small.
After the spinach is washed, put it in boiling water for half a minute, remove it, squeeze out the water, and freeze the frozen tofu and cut into pieces.
The pot is hot and the oil is sautéed. After the garlic is scented, the frozen tofu is fried for a while, and the frozen tofu will gradually produce a little soup.
Boil the spinach, stir well, simmer for a while, season with salt and serve.
in conclusion: 1. Although spinach contains oxalic acid, it also contains other elements that promote calcium absorption: potassium, magnesium, and vitamin K! Both potassium and magnesium reduce calcium loss, while vitamin K promotes calcium deposition in bone. The content of potassium and vitamin K in spinach is among the best in vegetables. When spinach is eaten with tofu, the calcium rich in tofu will be more easily absorbed by the body under the action of potassium, magnesium and vitamin K in spinach, and the calcium supplement effect is good! (In the saying that spinach tofu can't be eaten together, none of the spinach contains these high-quality nutrients that are good for the body, but only point to the oxalic acid. And oxalic acid is found in almost all plant foods, especially green leafy vegetables. The content is high, only take spinach to say things - later there are small onions, obviously unfair and not objective) 2, oxalic acid will affect the body's absorption of calcium, but we can not eat oxalic acid-containing food because of this (if so, the plant food is almost impossible to eat), it is wise to reduce oxalic acid as much as possible. way of doing. Fortunately, oxalic acid is very soluble in water, so before you spin the spinach, you can remove about 80% of oxalic acid and minimize the impact of oxalic acid on people. (The vegetables with higher oxalic acid are also: leaf beet, apricot, leeks, bamboo shoots, etc., the general taste of licorice is higher. In fact, most plant foods contain oxalic acid, including rice, noodles, Beans and vegetables are different in content. In addition, the oxalic acid content of chocolate is not low!) 3, because oxalic acid will affect the absorption of calcium, to a certain extent, promote the loss of calcium, which means that when eating more vegetables with more oxalic acid, it should increase the intake of calcium - such as calcium-rich tofu, sesame paste, Dairy products, etc. 4. When eating vegetables with high oxalic acid content, try to smash it first and remove most of the oxalic acid. At the same time eat more calcium-rich foods to reduce the body's absorption of oxalic acid. 5, soy is a fatty food - often referred to as plant meat, so soy products are actually more suitable to match with vegetables, rather than with the same fat-rich meat. Seeing no, spinach is eaten with calcium-rich tofu and is actually a very good calcium supplement. Maybe you don't like this dish, but at least you should dispel the misunderstanding of this combination and treat them correctly and objectively. No food is perfect, and no food is useless. The key is to look at this kind of food, which brings more benefits to people, or more bad. Green bean curd is a very good match, but because of a little bit of oxalic acid on the black pot. The adverse effects of eating more meat on the body are far greater than this oxalic acid, but few people have to study the dietary taboos of fat. How many people are far from the spinach tofu because of the undetermined "calcium oxalate", it is really aggrieved for this quality combination. There are no bad foods, only unreasonable meals. Green vegetables and tofu are safe, the old saying is right~~~~~
