Nutritional Bonus: Just one serving of our multipurpose spread satisfies about 10% of your daily need for vitamin K. The fat-soluble vitamin is necessary for blood clotting, but make sure to get some healthy fat in your diet too so the vitamin can be properly absorbed (same goes for fat-soluble vitamins A, D and E).
