In addition, nutritionally the strengths of beef are many: about 100 grams of beef can provide more than 20% of the necessary iron in a day. In addition, the presence of meat favors the absorption of iron forms from vegetables, which justifies its association with vegetables. Another important contribution is zinc – 100 grams can cover 30-40% of the recommended daily intakes – as well as magnesium, potassium, copper and other minerals and microelements, such as selenium and others.
In addition to providing water-soluble vitamins of group B. Of special interest is the content of vitamin B12, which is not found in vegetable products, except if they are fermented. Almost all cuts of beef contain about 2 micrograms per 100 grams. The average daily needs of an adult person are about 2 micrograms, which is covered by about 100 grams of beef. Therefore, vitamin B12 is another of the key nutritional values of beef, along with iron and protein.
