Vitamin D Bread Answer to Vitamin D Deficiency Problem
It is believed that 7 out of 10 Americans are unable to meet their Vitamin D requirements. Under such circumstances, a study published in the ACS’ Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry might come to the rescue. Scientists suggest that Vitamin-D fortified food can help fulfill the Vitamin D requirements of the body. Bread made out of high-vitamin D yeast is a great option.
Vitamin D is important for the absorption of calcium in the body. It is vital for the strong bones and also for the well-being of the whole body. Vitamin D deficiency has been associated with increased risk of cancer, heart diseases, allergies and other conditions. Vitamin D in dairy products is not enough for the body. The sunlight is also an important source of this vitamin. But during winters, people are not exposed to the sun. Therefore, it is important to look for new ways for adding Vitamin D to the diet.
Connie Weaver and the team carried out experiments on laboratory rats to find out if bread made of Vitamin D yeast can be a solution to this problem. The researchers observed and concluded that high-vitamin D bread can prove valuable vitamin D source in the diet.
