Is there a list of Vitamin K in foods?

Is there any way to get a list of foods that shows the amount of vitamin K ln each??

Dr. Gourmet Says...

There are three lists on the Dr. Gourmet website that can help you. They range from a quick and simple listing to a comprehensive list of ingredients used in recipes on the Dr. Gourmet website that gives the amount of Vitamin K in micrograms. Here are the links to those lists:

Basic list

List of foods with relative amounts of Vitamin K

Comprehensive list

In addition there is an easy way to find out about the nutrition content of any food. The USDA National Nutrient Database is at this link:

http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/search/

By entering an ingredient and following the steps this website will report the complete nutritional values of any ingredient and many prepared foods. The Vitamin K content is the last listing at the bottom of the Vitamins section. If it is not there, the food or ingredient that you searched on doesn't contain enough Vitamin K to be reported.
