Errata: Recommended D Levels & Mustard Green Ca Content
1. On p. 8 of the Executive Summary for their 2010 Dietary Reference Intakes for Calcium and Vitamin D, the Institute of Medicine says that they are basing their recommendations on a vitamin D level of 16 to 20 ng/ml of 25(OH)D. I have been using that as the level to indicate adequate vitamin D. But later in the document (p. 14), they talk about ideal levels some more and conclude that less than 20 ng/dl might be potentially too low for some people and therefore they recommend at least 20 ng/ml.
I have changed the levels in my calcium and vitamin D articles to reflect this. (Thanks, Brandon!)
2. In the table of calcium in plant foods, I had listed the wrong amount of calcium in a 1/2 cup serving of “Mustard greens – frozen, cooked, boiled, drained, chopped” as 107 mg. It is actually 76 mg.
