I googled Vitamin D milk and nutrition, and none of the vitamin D milk entries found in the three highest google rated pages said that a single serving of Vitamin D milk had even 1% of my recommended daily allowance (standard that replaced minimum daily requirement many years ago)
From a New York Times web page dated today:
Most milk in the United States is fortified with 400 IU vitamin D per quart. It should be noted that foods made from milk, such as cheese and ice cream, are usually not fortified. Vitamin D is added to many breakfast cereals and to some brands of soy beverages, orange juice, yogurt, and margarine. Check the nutrition fact panel on the food label. Supplements
From a source called Fooducate:
... is milk a good source of Vitamin D? Not exactly . . .
Many studies have found milk contains less Vitamin D than it purports. And you've only got around 20-25% of Vitamin D in fortified milk - you shouldn't drink 4 glasses of a milk a day.
Gee, I think that if I get one fourth of an essential nutrient from one serving of anything, that's pretty good, but it doesn't explain why the three pages I checked for Vitamin D Milk's vitamin D content had it at zero
