When the fortifying accurse?
– The FDA recommends that milk manufacturers add vitamin D after the separation of milk fat and before homogenization, the mixing process that keeps milk fats from rising to top of the liquid. Adding vitamin D before homogenization ensures that the vitamin is thoroughly mixed into the milk.

Natural Vitamin D
– All milk produced by cows and other animals contains a low concentration of vitamin D, which is affected by the animals’ feed and sun exposure. The FDA reports that raw cow’s milk typically contains 5 to 40 IU of vitamin D per quart. Because the level is low, it is not typically considered in determining the amount of vitamin D concentrate added to fortify milk. Therefore, processed milk may contain slightly more vitamin D than is listed in the nutrition facts.
