The Nutrition Innovation Centre for Food and Health, Ulster University, in association with The Dairy Council for Northern Ireland brings you the Annual Dairy Council Nutrition Lecture presented by Dr Sarah Booth, Director, Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging, Tufts University.

There is a great deal of confusion in the popular press regarding the forms of vitamin K and their relative contribution to health. During this Lecture, we will explore the different forms of vitamin K (there are at least 11 known forms!) and what is known about their metabolism.  Food sources, including dairy products, and dietary intakes of vitamin K will be described relative to current recommendations, with an emphasis on older adults.  We will then explore the current knowledge of what vitamin K does beyond its role in supporting normal coagulation.  There will be an emphasis on the quality of evidence relative to popular claims about this essential nutrient.
