Coenzyme Q10 concentrations in foods and dietary intake
Elaborated reviews on CoQ10 and diets were published in 2010. New occurrences in analyses have since enabled a more succinct determination of CoQ10 concentrations in various foods (see Table below).
|Food||Coenzyme Q10 concentration [mg/kg]|
|spinach||up to 10|
Meat and fish are the richest source of dietary CoQ10 and levels over 50 mg/kg can be found in beef, pork and chicken heart, and chicken liver. Dairy products are much poorer sources of CoQ10 compared to animal tissues. Vegetable oils are also quite rich in CoQ10. Within vegetables, parsley, and perilla are the richest CoQ10 sources, but significant differences in their CoQ10 levels can be found in the literature. Broccoli, grape, and cauliflower are modest sources of CoQ10. Most fruit and berries represent a poor to very poor source of CoQ10, with the exception of avocado, with a relatively high CoQ10 content.
In the developed world, the estimated daily intake of CoQ10 has been determined at 3–6 mg per day, derived primarily from meat.
Effect of heat and processing
Cooking by frying reduces CoQ10 content by 14–32%.
