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?
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.
There's an easy way to find out about the nutrition content of any food. The USDA National Nutrient Database is at this link:
By entering an ingredient and following the steps this website will report the complete nutritional values of any ingredient and many prepared foods.
