I am amassing quite a vegan chili recipe collection. However I have some concerns. I read that to much Vitamin A can be bad, some recipes have small serving sizes and 586%-228% daily Value of Vitamin A in each small serving size. Neither is from meat recipes but I hear vegetable Vitamin A is better than animal Vitamin A and apparently somehow its not as dangerous? Am I potentially going to kill my folks giving them these recipes?
No, vitamin A overdose is a condition, true, which occurs when the liver's natural storage of the vitamin is full and so it begins to cause problems. The main cause though, is excessive vitamin 'supplements' taken by people who already have a perfectly healthy diet. Pretty much anything in huge excess will make you ill, you have bigger fish to fry (or steam) right now than worrying about too many vitamins!
