Food Items rich in Vitamin D3 and D5

Vitamin D3 is primarily found in animal-based sources, while vitamin D5 is mostly sourced from plants. Here are some of the foods rich in each:

Fatty Fish

Salmon, mackerel, tuna, and sardines are excellent sources of vitamin D3.

Egg Yolks

Eggs contain some vitamin D3, predominantly in the yolk

Dairy Products

Fortified milk, cheese, and yogurt can contain small amounts of vitamin D3.


Some varieties of mushrooms, particularly when exposed to UV light, can produce vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol), which the body converts into vitamin D5.

Fortified Foods

Certain plant-based foods like fortified cereals, orange juice, and plant-based milk alternatives (soy, almond, or oat milk) may contain vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol), which converts to D5 in the body.
