Foods rich in phosphorus: they should never be missing at the table!

Foods rich in phosphorus

Here are the foods rich in phosphorus, a very important mineral, which our body should never lack, and how to introduce them in the diet.

Phosphorus is a fundamental mineral for our body. It is in fact responsible for the mineralization of bones and teeth, stimulates muscle contraction, ensures the absorption of energy and vitamins, regulates the pH of the blood and improves memory .

As with vitamins and other mineral salts, it must be introduced into the body first of all with food and then, if this is not enough, with supplements. So let’s see what are the foods rich in phosphorus!

Foods that contain phosphorus: what are they?

-Cereals. Whole grains are the richest foods in phosphorus. The best from this point of view are wheat germ, barley, rice, quinoa and amaranth.

-Legumes. Beans, lentils, chickpeas, broad beans and soy are a source of phosphorus, calcium and protein. This is why they should never be lacking in nutrition, especially if you follow a vegan or vegetarian diet.

– Dried fruits. Cashews, pistachios, almonds and walnuts are a source of phosphorus. Cashews also contain calcium, iron, magnesium and vitamin K; pistachios potassium, magnesium, zinc, calcium, vitamin A, B vitamins and vitamin E; calcium almonds and Omega 3 walnuts. Pine nuts, although not fruits, but seeds, have the same properties as almonds and walnuts.

– Pumpkin and sunflower seeds. These oil seeds contain phosphorus, iron and zinc. They can be eaten alone, after roasting, or added to salads and other dishes.

-Fish. In addition to containing phosphorus, fish (especially sea bream, sea bass and cod) is also rich in Omega 3.

– Milk and derivatives. Milk and dairy products, such as yoghurt and cheese, are rich not only in phosphorus, but also in calcium, vitamins D and A, all of which are essential for the body.
