|Food Sources of B Vitamins|
|B vitamins are required for energy metabolism. Good sources for most B vitamins include whole grain products such as whole wheat pasta, and whole grain breads and cereals. These foods also provide plenty of fiber and other essential nutrients. An exception is vitamin B12. It is not found in whole grains, vegetables or fruits. It is found in meat, eggs and dairy products. Thus vegetarians, as well as adults over age 50 (who may not absorb vitamin B 12 well), may benefit from foods fortified with B12. |
