Vitamin B12 Deficiency

Strict vegetarians and vegans are at greater risk than lacto-ovo vegetarians and nonvegetarians of developing vitamin B12 deficiency because natural food sources of vitamin B12 are limited to animal foods. Fortified breakfast cereals are one of the few sources of vitamin B12 from plants and can be used as a dietary source of vitamin B12 for strict vegetarians and vegans.

Recommendations for daily intake of vitamin B12 is 2.4 mcg for adult.
Pregnant women's daily intake should be 2.6 mcg, and 2.8 mcg for lactating women.

Health risks to pregnant and lactating women who follow strict vegetarian diets and their infants

Vitamin B12 crosses the placenta during pregnancy and is present in breast milk. Exclusively breastfed infants of women who consume no animal products may have very limited reserves of vitamin B12 and can develop vitamin B12 deficiency within months of birth. Undetected and untreated vitamin B12 deficiency in infants can result in severe and permanent neurological damage.

Vitamin B12 Food Sources for Vegetarians

Vitamin B12 is naturally found in animal products, including fish, meat, poultry, eggs, milk, and milk products. Vitamin B12 is generally not present in plant foods, but fortified breakfast cereals are a readily available source of vitamin B12.

This unique vitamin B12 database for vegetarians contains only non-animal food sources. Lacto-ovo vegetarians can use our comprehensive Vitamin B12 Content of Foods database to find additional sources of vitamin B12 from eggs and dairy products.

In addition to vitamin B12 data, we provide the macronutrient data for each food listed in this vegetarian food database. To display the hidden nutrient data, click on the appropriate checkboxes in list above.
