Frequently Asked Questions
You can eat spinach either raw or cooked, but if you cook it, you'll absorb more calcium and iron. This is because spinach contains oxalic acid, which can prevent your body from absorbing calcium and iron, but if you cook the spinach, the oxalic acid will break down.
Raw spinach will last in the fridge for up to 10 days in a vegetable crisper. Make sure you don't store it next to bananas or apples, as the ethylene gas produced by those fruits will cause the spinach to go back quicker.
