Raisins

I was told that Raisins are a good source of iron, but on a well known packet of raisins, there is no mention that they contain iron. Have I been misinformed?

Dear Anaemic
According to the SA Food Tables raisins contain 2.1 mg of iron per 100g, which is 15% of the adult Recommended Daily Allowance for iron. Other foods that are rich in iron include liver, red meat, fish, poultry, egg yolk and breakfast cereals and bread that are fortified with iron.
