Question about vit k, iodine and omega 3.

edited September 2020 in General Nutrition

Why is Iodine not listed in the minerals? Or vitamin K2 since it's not the same as vitamin K. Also I would like to see omega 3 broken down to at least EPA and DHA acid. Since their role is different.

  • Hi Gudfinnaberg,

    Iodine is not shown by default because we don't have a lot of data for the iodine content of foods.

    You can add it to your profile if you like!
    Please go to: Settings > Targets > Nutrient Targets > Minerals.
    Find Iodine in the list and check the box in the visible column to add it.

    We don't have the breakdown of types of omega 3 or vitamin K1 and K2 (though typically sources only analyze vitamin K1 (phylloquinone) only). We will look for sources of this information to include when we can. Thanks!
