List of Foods High in Vitamin D

10 Common Foods That Are High in Vitamin D

You may be able to say sayonara to your vitamin D supplements. An updated report says the uber high levels of vitamin D some doctors recommend (we're talking 2000 IU) are unnecessary and could actually be harmful. Turns out most people get enough of the much-talked-about vitamin D from our diets and natural sources like the sun. Adults have a recommended daily intake of 400 to 600 IU. Fish always tops the vitamin D-rich list, but these common foods are all strong sources. Of course, talk to your doctor about what's right for you and to ensure you don't have a deficiency.

  • Canned salmon has 920 IU.
  • Vitasoy Nasoya Lite Firm Tofu packs 581 IU.
  • Soy milk (with added calcium and vitamins A and D) has 297 IU.
  • Orange juice (fortified with calcium and vitamin D) packs 259 IU.
  • Low-fat milk (with added vitamins A and D) serves up 248 IU.
  • Nonfat milk (with added vitamins A and D) has 241 IU.
  • Kellogg's All-Bran with extra fiber dishes 219 IU.
  • Quaker instant oatmeal (the "For Women" variety) has 188 IU.
  • Mushrooms (raw) have 164 IU.
  • One scrambled egg has 41 IU.

Stats above based on levels per 200 calorie serving. See what DrSugar has to advise about vitamin D for more about the vital vitamin.
