Humans consume two types of iron: heme and non-heme. Heme iron is the most easily absorbed form of iron. Highest in heme iron is red meat such as beef, venison, lamb, buffalo; also blue fin tuna is higher in heme iron than most other types of fish. All meat and fish also contain non-heme iron, which is found mostly in vegetables, fruits, nuts, grains and most over-the-counter iron supplements.
