Nutritional yeast with added B12


You only need to absorb a tiny amount of vitamin B12 daily, around 4 mcg a day. The receptors in the ileum that absorb B12 can only absorb about 1.5 mcg at once and cannot absorb any more for several hours. To obtain adequate levels of B12 on a plant-based diet, you should consume at least three servings of B12 fortified foods daily, plant-based milks and nutritional yeast are often available in fortified versions.
