-Cooked spinach offers more calcium than raw spinach. The reason for this is oxalate, which binds to calcium and prevents it from being absorbed by the body. Cooking it breaks these binds and allows the extremely high amount of calcium in spinach to be properly digested. One cup of frozen, then cooked spinach contains 291mg of calcium per cup. Raw it only contains 30miligrams.
