Oyster/Mollusc: How Much Vitamin K?

Seeing as some shellfish might give you temporary amnesia, I might’ve forgotten to cover how much vitamin K they contain… 😉

Raw mollusc/oyster does contain vitamin K:

  • 1 ounce/28 grams of mollusc/oyster contains zero vitamin K – 0% Daily Value (DV)
  • 6 medium/84 grams of mollusc/oyster contains 0.1 mcg of vitamin K – 0% DV
  • 100 grams of mollusc/oyster contains 0.1 mcg of vitamin K – 0% DV
  • 1 cup/248 grams of mollusc/oyster contains 0.2 mcg of vitamin K – 0% DV

That’s quite safe to consume in large portions/binge eating.  The rest of the meal?  That depends…

Eating The Wrong Shellfish Could Give You Temporary Amnesia

Believe it or not, there is such a thing known as “amnesic shellfish poisoning”. Eating the wrong piece of shellfish — or occasionally just the wrong anchovy — can make you lose your memory.

I love anchovies, and I can’t remember a time this has happened to me!

Wait…

Things I Ate At the MD Ren Faire

The Maryland Renaissance Festival, aka The World Series of Cleavage, features a lot of weird things (its clientele typically chief among them), but it’s possible that nothing there is more bizarre than the food. Last weekend, I set out to eat these experiments in gastronomic mad science, because I am just that committed to comedy/taking vengeance against my digestive tract.

The scotch eggs are cool.  …if you’re into that sort of thing.  Otherwise, I submit this helpful food pyramid for ren faire food.
