- The bioavailability of vitamin D from fortified cheeses and supplements is equivalent in adultsDennis Wagner
Department of Nutritional Sciences, University of Toronto, M563E2 Toronto, Canada
J Nutr 138:1365-71. 2008..003) and supplementation (P = 0.012). These data demonstrate that vitamin D is equally bioavailable from fortified hard cheeses and supplements, making cheese suitable for vitamin D fortification...
- Vitamin D3 fortification, quantification, and long-term stability in Cheddar and low-fat cheesesDennis Wagner
Department of Nutritional Sciences, University of Toronto, 150 College Street, Toronto, Ontario M5S 3E2, Canada
J Agric Food Chem 56:7964-9. 2008..The fortification process did not alter the yield, chemical composition, or flavor of the Cheddar cheese. We conclude that industrially manufactured Cheddar and low-fat cheeses are suitable for vitamin D3 fortification...
