What foods are high in vitamin B12?

Vitamin B12 is found in:

Milk: Dairy and (some) non-dairy brands are fortified with B12. If you’re allergic to dairy and drink natural milk like almond, soy, oat or cashew, just be sure to check the nutrition label for B12.

Fortified cereals: If you identify as a vegan or vegetarian, some cereals are a great source of B12.

Eggs: Egg yolks contain more B12 than egg whites. It’s important to eat the whole egg if you are trying to increase your B12 intake.

Yogurt: Fun fact: Eating full-fat plain yogurt has been shown to improve vitamin B12 deficiency because the vitamin is more easily-absorbed in dairy products. If you’re looking for fewer calories, fat-free Greek yogurt is a healthier option that also provides a solid amount of B12.

Salmon: Many people who try to eat healthier include salmon in their diets. It has a ton of omega-3 fatty acids and protein, as well as B vitamins. Just half of a cooked salmon fillet (6 ounces) contains more than 200% of the daily value for B12.

Tuna: Whether you’re a fan of canned or cooked tuna, both provide many essential nutrients, including B12. If canned is your preference, opt for light tuna in water.

Beef: Eating 3 ounces of red meat one to two times per week is recommended.

Liver and kidneys: Organ meats are incredibly rich in B12, but also contain a large amount of cholesterol. For this reason, people who include organ meat in their diet to do so in moderation.

Clams: Also, a lean source of protein, iron and antioxidants, a 3.5-ounce serving of baby clams provides over 4,000% of vitamin B12’s daily value.
