The Hemochromatosis Cookbook - Recipes and Meals For Reducing Iron Absorption in Your Diet - Book Review

Haemochromatosis is is one of modern medicine's greatest oversights. An inherited metabolic iron disorder, it is most common in people of Northern European descent and most prominent in North America among the Scotch-Irish. For people with metabolic iron disorders, controlling the intake of iron contributes to wellness and the prevention of such chronic diseases as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, liver disease, impotence, and depression.

The Haemochromatosis Cookbook is written specifically for those who suffer from such iron disorders. It has chapters on all of the traditional categories found in most cookbooks: appetizers, salads, fruits and vegetables, main courses and casseroles, breads and muffins, and desserts. In addition, The Haemochromatosis Cookbook is characterized by the following:

  • Easy-to-prepare, reasonably priced recipes that impede the body's absorption of iron
  • Food values and tips suggesting substitutions for reduced fat, sodium, and sugar
  • Helpful menu planning for busy schedules, cooking for company, or cooking for two
  • Diet plans for a typical week, including meals that can be prepared ahead of time and frozen
  • A shopping checklist with reminders about iron content
  • A chart showing the iron contents of common foods and vitamin supplements
  • A general explanation of iron imbalances, such as hereditary haemochromatosis, acquired iron overload, and anemia
