Vitamin K Finder
For many patients taking warfarin, information about dietary vitamin K is difficult to obtain. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration requires that all food and beverage products be labeled with nutritional content; however, vitamin K information is not included on most labels. This omission makes it difficult for you to remain consistent in dietary vitamin K consumption.

Now over 5,000 items on our Vitamin K Finder!
The PTINR.com® website offers a comprehensive listing of the vitamin K content for over 5,000 common foods and beverages in our Vitamin K Finder.
Vitamin K is measured in micrograms, which is one millionth of a gram. All vitamin K values in the Finder are provided in micrograms per serving size, using either the U.S. Department of Agriculture food studies as their reference or the manufacturer information.
Drop Down Menu
The Vitamin K Finder provides a user-friendly drop down menu to look up individual foods. Simply enter the food of interest in the search field, and the menu will assist in the completion of the search. Only foods with referenced vitamin K information are available. If a food is not listed, then there are not adequate published studies regarding its vitamin K content; omission does not indicate that a food contains zero micrograms of vitamin K.
We also provide the entire listing of foods and beverages in a printable version of the Vitamin K Finder. This format allows a more practical means for you to reference foods while traveling, shopping, or dining out.
The printable version also categorizes foods into high and medium vitamin K content, and listed by micrograms, allowing you to balance food choices for a consistent, healthy warfarin lifestyle.
Keeping track of food choices and their vitamin K content is also made easier by the Vitamin K Food Diary® Log , which allows you to track dietary vitamin K from meal to meal and day to day. The diary enables the user to enter total vitamin K content from each meal, calculate daily vitamin K in-take, and determine total weekly vitamin K consumption.
