Investigate the Magnetic Content of Food

Feb 7, 2018

There is a lot of iron in our food. It's an essential element to our diet and health, and if we don't get it we suffer serious health effects, such as anemia.
However, it's still iron, and that means it's still magnetic! Most foods have such a negligible amount of iron that a magnet won't affect it. However, some foods are 'iron enriched,' meaning they have been augmented for health reasons.
 First, get a strong, neodymium magnet.
Then, take a breakfast cereal that has a large percentage of your recommended iron intake. Bran Flakes are a good choice.
Put the cereal in a bowl and smash it up until it's a fine mixture.
Then, use your strong neodymium magnet and try to isolate the iron from the cereal.
If you do it right, you'll see little black specks of iron appear on the magnet! Amazing, right? | Tel: +86-574-28858590 | CopyRight © 2014 Ningbo Bei Ke Magnetic Material Co., Ltd.
