Myth-Busting on Vitamin B12…

B12! Off you go! This always gets people excited… Can you get it from mushrooms? Seaweed? I heard apricots contained it too! The magical B12 fairy seems to sprinkle it around in the funniest of places. I don’t rely on any of these foods for B12, I get mine from fortified soya milk, Marmite, Engevita Nutritional Yeast Flakes, fortified cereal and the odd supplement when I’m feeling weedy. The research on B12 is quite interesting… B12 from animal products may be harder to absorb than that from fortified foods! Have a read for yourself here in the fact sheet I wrote for the Vegetarian & Vegan Foundation.
