How much Vitamin K is in pomegranates, nectarines and dried apricots?
I am on Coumadin for a PE approximately 1 year ago and love pomegranates, nectarines and dried apricots. I have not been able to find out if these food items are a low, medium or high vitamin K product. Can you assist please?
Dr. Gourmet Says...
Pomegranates contain 25 micrograms (mcg) of Vitamin K in each
3 3/8 inch diameter fruit (that's about 5 1/2 ounces). Pomegranate
juice is also reported to be high at 26 micrograms per cup.
A 2 1/2 inch nectarine has 3 mcg while a half cup of dried apricots
contain only 2 mcg. Both of these are low in Vitamin K.
