Your site has helped me so much: thank you. Question: What is the vitamin K difference between roasted beets and pickled beets? What would a serving size be for the pickled beets?
Beets have essentially no Vitamin K so you're safe there.
4 ounces of raw beets: 49 calories, 2g protein, 3g fiber, 0 fat, 88mg sodium, 0.2 micrograms Vitamin K
4 ounces pickled beets, both solids and liquids: 73 calories, 0.9g protein, 1g fiber, 0 fat, 168mg sodium, 0.3 micrograms Vitamin K
4 ounces canned beets, drained: 35 calories, 1g protein, 2g fiber, 0 fat, 219mg sodium, 0.2 micrograms Vitamin K
A good rule of thumb for the serving size of most vegetables is 4 ounces. While some veggies will be lower in calories than beets - for example, 4 ounces of mushrooms have only about 25 calories - this is a good place to start.
You can find out the exact amount of Vitamin K in virtually any food by using the searchable USDA database. A handy printed pocket size reference list is available here at the Dr. Gourmet website, as is a PDF version of the same document.
