In their latest blog post, Jenny Sangler explains that many believe that vegetarians lack vitamin B12.
She explains that WebMD state that a vegetarian diet will almost always lead to a deficiency of the vitamin, while a document by the UK’s largest vegetarian society believes quite the opposite.
“While it’s an interesting debate to consider, I feel that it’s probably more useful to focus on looking at how we can incorporate enough of this essential nutrient into our vegetarian diets,” Jenny says.
After explaining the benefits of getting enough B12, such as red blood cell production and the avoidance of Anemia, Jenny gives her readers vital information on the best sources of the vitamin.
“If you feel the same way as I do about supplements, but want to make sure that you’re getting enough vitamin B12 you’ll need to include foods in your diet that have been fortified with B12,” she adds.
Jenny writes that good sources include
- Nutritional yeast – sold in flake or powder form and often used in recipes as a cheese replacement
- Fortified milk and non-dairy milk products
- Fortified cereals – Nature’s Path Organic have a great range
- Meat replacement products such as Tofurky and products made by Gardein and Morningstar Farms – read the labels carefully to check for B12 quantities
Jenny concludes by explaining that incorporating enough Vitamin B12 into a vegetarian diet is easier than most initially believe.
She also invites readers who have other suggestions for great sources of Vitamin B12 to get in contact with her via her blog.
