Marks & Spencer has become the first retailer in the United Kingdom to add vitamin D to its packaged bread line.

LONDON — Marks & Spencer has become the first retailer in the United Kingdom to add vitamin D to its packaged bread line. The initiative will provide a minimum of 15% of the daily requirement of vitamin D in every two-slice serving. Marks & Spencer said the move reflects concerns that consumers are not getting the recommended daily amount of the vitamin, which helps to keep bones healthy. In recent years, nutritionists have suggested a broad range of health benefits may be associated with vitamin D intake. Numerous bakers in the United States have offered bread with vitamin D for several years.

Get vitamin D naturally this summer each day. Use a SunFriend wristband to make sure you are getting enough, but not so much you burn. Love the sun, balance your exposure with a SunFriend.
