    Sorry. That last was a mistake. Here is what was meant to be in its place.

      Not a very good resource, IMO. The author seems to think that the RDA is sufficient for Vitamin D. I think most of us know that this is not true.

      If in any doubt, read Mark's take:Vitamin D: Sun Exposure, Supplementation and Doses | Mark's Daily Apple

      • Mushrooms are high in D2 not D3--the form preferred by the body.

      • Except for Cod liver oil, which comes with potentially too much vitamin A, none of the food sources will get you even close to the 1000 IUs per 25/lbs of body weight recommended by the Vitamin D Council and other researchers.

      • SUN is the best source of Vitamin D3, if you can get it--Oil-based D3 supplements are the next easiest & cheapest source.

        The author is a vegetarian. The web site is a vegetarian centered thing. But---I thought the list and pictures were sort of nice.

        Thanks for your modifications and improvements. That's why we all come here.

        By the way, I hold Mark in the highest regard, but his word isn't always gospel. It is just a waymark for added study. I have no gurus.

        Dried Shiitake mushrooms do pretty well in the vitamin d content.
