b12 % of daily intake

Posted on January 21, 2006. Filed under: Uncategorized |

With the severe B12 deficiency I have I’ve decided to try to eat more than I need each day to see if that changes anything. Apparently you need 3 micrograms a day…So here’s my list of what to eat.

What foods provide vitamin B12?
Vitamin B12 is naturally found in animal foods including fish, meat, poultry, eggs, milk, and milk products.

Mollusks, clam, mixed species, cooked, 3 ounces = 84.1 mcg
Liver, beef, braised, 1 slice = 47.9 mcg
Trout, rainbow, wild, cooked, 3 ounces = 5.4 mcg
Salmon, sockeye, cooked, 3 ounces = 4.9 mcg
Trout, rainbow, farmed, cooked, 3 ounces = 4.2 mcg
Beef, top sirloin, lean, choice, broiled, 3 ounces = 2.4 mcg
Haddock, cooked, 3 ounces = 1.2 mcg
Tuna, white, canned in water, drained solids, 3 ounces = 1.0 mcg
Pork, cured, ham, lean only, canned, roasted, 3 ounces = 0.6 mcg
Egg, whole, hard boiled, 1 = 0.6 mcg
Chicken, breast, meat only, roasted, ½ breast = 0.3 mcg
