July 11, 2015Reviewer: Daniel in Florida* I have used NOW D3 1000 IU several times in the past and was satisfied. However, in buying this time I noticed that all the variants of NOW D3 make the claim that they are soy free but the 400 IU and the 1000 IU varieties then go on to say that additional ingredients include soybean oil. This strikes me as a deceptive claim. The 2000 IU and above use other oils such as olive oil.
Since I wanted the 1000 IU size and I don't ever want soybeans or soybean oil in my products I opted for the Doctor's Best version which does use olive oil in all sizes.
I would rate the 2000 IU and above as "4" for the better ingredients but knocking it down 1 just for the apparent deception of the company.
Editor's note: "The ingredients are listed for each size and dosage. At the time of this writing, some contain soybean oil and some do not. Please read ingredients closely. There is no deception being perpetrated."This review is specific to Vitamin D-3, 1000 IU
