Top 15 Foods Highest in Vitamins

Want to know which foods are the best sources of vitamins? We looked at all our top 10 lists for 14 different vitamins, including: Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, B12, C, D, E, K, Beta Carotene, and Lycopene and counted how many times each food appeared.

Since some vitamins are fat soluble (need fat to be absorbed) meats, oils, and dairy tend to be a better source than leafy vegetables or fruits. The top 15 foods highest in vitamins include fish, dark leafy greens, seeds, broccoli, pork, beef, lamb, mushrooms, nuts, eggs, sweet bell peppers, avocados, peas, winter squash, and fruits.
