Spinach is a great source of iron. A 180-gram serving contains 6 mg. That's 50% more than a hamburger of the same serving size!
Did you know that during World War I, French soldiers drank spinach-infused wine for added nutrients!
Spinach was native to Persia (now Iran) before it was introduced to China and India in the 7th century. It wasn't until the 12th century that it was introduced to Europe. It was first grown in the United States in 1806.
