    According to this site, egg protein reduces iron absorption.

    One funny thing is that that site claims that citric acid enhances iron absorption, but the reference they cite claims citric acid reduces iron absorption.

    So apparently Sprite, which contains citric acid, could reduce absorption by 66%, a greater reduction than that of coffee?

    Interesting. The link in your first post says citric acid enhances iron absorption.
