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?
Dr. Gourmet Says...
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.
