I have just been put on Coumadin after having aortic valve replacement.
I cannot find out if raspberries have a large amount of Vitamin K in
them. Can you answer for me? Thank you.

would be considered a low amount and safe for Coumadin® (warfarin). In fact,
pretty much all fruits are going to be safe for you. You can check that using
