I am on Coumadin and am trying to stay away from foods high in K. I looked on your list of foods and you have cucumbers as low. The list that my doctor gave to me has it as high. Also, you list V-8 juice as low. Doesn't that have lots of green vegetables in it?
One cup of cucumber slices with the peel has only 17 micrograms (mcg) of Vitamin K. This would be a low to medium amount.
The Vitamin K content of V8 Juice is not reported by Campbell's to the USDA for their database. The database does report generic "tomato and vegetable juice, low sodium" as having 13 mcg of Vitamin K.
You can find out the nutritional content of any ingredient by logging into the Dr. Gourmet Diet Plan Software and clicking the Recipe Box tab. You will find a database with over 7,000 ingredients. The menu planning software will also help you track your daily Vitamin K intake along with calories and other nutrients. Click the Food Diary section.
