Low K Foods
In the context of this website and the associated cookbook, Healthy Living with Warfarin, ‘Low K foods’ refers to any foods which are generally available in a local supermarket in which the Vitamin K of a standard serve is below 10% of the RDA for adults. It is these food stuffs which have been used to create the recipes. The theory behind this designation is that, by providing such a list of foods, the reader/user of the cookbook can make informed decisions regarding the amount of Vitamin K eaten in any one day and yet enjoy a variety of foods. The values of the foods used are given in tables at the front of the book and a summary of the Vitamin K value of each recipe is provided within each recipe itself.
