1. vitamin B12 suppliers for vegetarians

Vitamin B12 is mainly found in animal foods. Since vegetarians avoid animal products, they must consume vitamin B12 in plant products. Large amounts of vitamin B12 are found primarily in eggs and dairy products. Just 100 grams of chicken egg can provide over 60 percent of your daily vitamin B12 requirement. Other vegetarian sources of vitamin B12 are cheese, yogurt and milk.

2 The daily requirement of vitamin B12

The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends a daily amount of about 4 micrograms of vitamin B12 for adolescents 13 years and older and adults. In general, children should reach a daily amount of vitamin B12 of about 2 micrograms. Dosage and daily requirement may vary in certain life situations such as pregnancy or breastfeeding. Newborns obtain their vitamin B12 from their mother's milk. However, since this is not sufficient and does not fill the stores, infants are given additional vitamin B12 by the doctor at the first examination after birth.

What happens in the case of a vitamin B12 deficiency?

If the human organism does not receive vitamin B12 over a long period of time, deficiency symptoms can occur. A vitamin B12 deficiency can also result from congenital absorption disorders, such as intestinal disease. The organism has a large vitamin B12 depot because it can store the essential vitamin. For this reason, a deficiency may only be discovered at a later stage. A vitamin B12 deficiency can be detected in the blood count; one of the first symptoms is anaemia.
