Vitamin D fortification of milk and juice. Figure 3 is analogous to Figure 2 and depicts fortification levels of milk and juice that are needed to either increase an individual’s vitamin D intake to a recommended level (IOM, DGE or to the UL, figureA) or to increase an individual’s 25(OH)D concentration to a preferred level (50 nmol/L or 75 nmol/L, figureB). The x-axis depicts recommended intake levels, while y-axis shows fortification levels in μg per 100 g of the respective carrier. White (5th percentile), grey (mean intake) and black shaded (95th percentile) bars reflect the current vitamin D intake levels (natural food sources and supplements). Shown here is only the scenario for individuals with a mean carrier (milk and juice) intake.
