Only a limited number of foods naturally contain vitamin D such as fish, meat and offal, and eggs, and milk and dairy products. However, all these foods in addition contain the metabolite 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD). From the few systematic studies which have been performed the food contents of 25OHD in animal foods are usually low but vary. Contents are typically very low in milk and fish (<0.1 microg/100 g), somewhat higher in meat and offal (0.2-0.4 microg/100 g) and up to 1 microg/100 g in… CONTINUE READING
