Vitamin B12: Nutrition Warning

Of all the B vitamins, B12 is the only one not found in plant foods. So for vegans, or vegetarians who don't eat eggs or cheese, B12 supplements or recourse to B12-fortified foods will be necessary. Tempeh, miso, and sea vegetables are not reliable sources of vitamin B12 for vegans, due to the effects of food processing.

B12 Supplements for Vegans

A B12 supplement should contain an active form of cyanocobalamin or hydroxocobalamin. The amount of B12 supplement should be about 5 micrograms daily.
