Vitamin K is a fat soluble nutrient essential for blood clotting.
Here at Forest Whole Food we think being a ‘food detective’ is so important in today’s world. Nutrition facts are fun once you start learning the ropes so we make sure we share as much information as possible.
Vitamin K actually comes in 3 forms which are quite simply called K1, K2 and K3. About 90% of our dietary source of Vitamin K are K1. Vegetarian sources come from cauliflower, broccoli, dark green vegetables and pulses. For omnivores egg yolk, liver and meat are also reliable sources of K1.
Vitamin K supports:
- Normal blood clotting
- Maintenance of bones
If you want to find foods that are a source of plant based Vitamin K per serving try sprouting our organic mung beans.
