Fluctuations in international normalized ratio values are often ascribed to dietary changes in vitamin K intake. Here we present a database with vitamin K<sub>1</sub> and K<sub>2</sub> contents of a wide variety of food items. K<sub>1</sub> was mainly present in green vegetables and plant margarins, K<sub>2</sub> in meat, liver, butter, egg yolk, natto, cheese and curd cheese. To investigate the effect of the food matrix on vitamin K bioavailability, 6 healthy male volunteers consumed either a… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Phylloquinone and dihydrophylloquinone contents of mixed dishes, processed meats, soups and cheeses
Assessment of dietary intakes of phylloquinone (VK-1) and dihydrophylloquinone (dK) has been limited by an overall deficit of food composition data, especially for mixed dishes and processed foods.Expand
The role of menaquinones (vitamin K₂) in human health.
TLDR
It is concluded that further investigations are needed to establish how differences among the vitamin K forms may influence tissue specificities and their role in human health, and there is merit for considering both menaquinones and phylloquinone when developing future recommendations for vitamin K intake. Expand
Quantification of phylloquinone and menaquinones in feces, serum, and food by high-performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry.
TLDR
A novel method employing high-performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry with atmospheric pressure chemical ionization (LC-APCI-MS) for simultaneous quantification of 11 vitamin K vitamers that can be applied in feces, serum and food is developed and successfully quantified PK and MKn concentrations in rat chow, feces and serum. Expand
Comparison of menaquinone-4 and menaquinone-7 bioavailability in healthy women
TLDR
It is concluded that MK-4 present in food does not contribute to the vitamin K status as measured by serum vitamin K levels, howeverMK-7 significantly increases serum MK-7 levels and therefore may be of particular importance for extrahepatic tissues. Expand
Differential lipoprotein transport pathways of K-vitamins in healthy subjects.
TLDR
The relatively large impact of menaquinones on extra-hepatic vitamin K status than generally assumed is suggested and the very long half-life time of MK-9 in the circulation indicates that it may form a more constant source of vitamin K than are either K1 or MK-4. Expand
Vitamin k contents of meat, dairy, and fast food in the u.s. Diet.
TLDR
The findings of this analysis indicate that no single food item in these categories is a rich dietary source of any one form of vitamin K, however, these foods are often consumed in large quantities; hence, they may be of importance in overall contribution to total vitamin K intake. Expand
Vitamin K content of foods and dietary vitamin K intake in Japanese young women.
TLDR
Dietary vitamin K intake in young women living in eastern Japan was assessed using vitamin K contents measured here and the Standard Tables of Food Composition in Japan, and PK from vegetables and algae and MK-7 from pulses were the major contributors. Expand
Influence of dietary menadione nicotinamide bisulphite (vitamin K3) and phylloquinone (vitamin K1) on Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) tissue levels, determined by high-performance liquid chromatography with fluorescence detection
The aim of the present study was to investigate the retention of menadione nicotinamide bisulphite (MNB; vitamin K3) and phylloquinone (vitamin K1) in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.). AnotherExpand
Treatment of natto, a fermented soybean preparation, to prevent excessive plasma vitamin K concentrations in patients taking warfarin.
TLDR
Boiling natto did not cause a marked increase in the plasma concentration of vitamin K in subjects who consumed it, and patients on warfarin may be able to eat boiled natto without ill effects. Expand
Safety and toxicological evaluation of a synthetic vitamin K2, menaquinone-7
Menaquinone-7 (MK-7) is part of a family of vitamin K that are essential co-factors for the enzyme γ-glutamyl carboxylase, which is involved in the activation of γ-carboxy glutamate (Gla) proteins inExpand

Vitamin K1 (Phylloquinone) content of foods: a provisional table
Abstract A provisional table on the vitamin K 1 (phylloquinone) content of foods was compiled in response to the expressed need for tabulated data by the public and professionals in medicine,Expand
Nutritional Intake of Vitamins K1 (Phylloquinone) and K2 (Menaquinone) in The Netherlands
Vitamin K plays a key role in the hepatic synthesis of blood clotting factors. Recently, other tissues (bone, vessel wall) were shown to produce vitamin K-dependent proteins not involved in bloodExpand
Comparison of phylloquinone bioavailability from food sources or a supplement in human subjects.
TLDR
There was no difference in phylloquinone absorption from fresh or cooked broccoli or from fresh romaine lettuce consumed with a meal containing 30 or 45% energy as fat. Expand
Comparative metabolism of phylloquinone and menaquinone-9 in rat liver.
TLDR
Phylloquinone was much more effective than MK-9 in maintaining normal vitamin K status at low dietary concentrations, whereas at high dietary concentrations they were equally effective. Expand
Intestinal flora is not an intermediate in the phylloquinone-menaquinone-4 conversion in the rat.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the conversion of phylloquinone into MK-4 in extrahepatic tissues may occur in the absence of an intestinal bacterial population and is tissue specific. Expand
Phylloquinone and menaquinone-4 distribution in rats: synthesis rather than uptake determines menaquinone-4 organ concentrations.
TLDR
The study shows the following: dietary phylloquinone is accumulated mainly in the heart and liver, the MK-4 accumulation in nonhepatic organs is due to synthesis rather than uptake andMK-4 rather than phyllaquinone may be the functional vitamin in non hepatics organs. Expand
Compilation of a provisional UK database for the phylloquinone (vitamin K1) content of foods†
TLDR
Within the scope of this present study, it has not been possible to address issues such as inter-sample variability, losses during storage or the bioavailability from different foods and further work on these aspects is needed. Expand
Chemistry, nutritional sources, tissue distribution and metabolism of vitamin K with special reference to bone health.
TLDR
A majority (approximately 60-70%) of the daily dietary intake of phylloquinone is lost to the body by excretion, which emphasizes the need for a continuous dietary supply to maintain tissue reserves. Expand
The contribution of vitamin K2 (menaquinones) produced by the intestinal microflora to human nutritional requirements for vitamin K.
TLDR
Data provide direct evidence for the absorption of vitamin K2 from the distal small bowel, supporting a definite role for bacterially synthesized vitamin K1 in contributing to the human nutritional requirements of this vitamin. Expand
Vitamin K metabolism and nutriture.
TLDR
Some recent advances in the understanding of the metabolism of vitamin K are outlined, leading to an increased knowledge of the mode of action of traditional coumarin anticoagulants and how some unrelated compounds may also antagonize vitamin K and cause bleeding. Expand
