Since Kellogg’s Corn Flakes are vegetarian, where did the vitamins B12 come from?
Would any nutritionist like to answer?
It is not indicated on Kellog’s website whether the vitamins B12 are naturally present, or added to the fortified cereals.
A quick research reveals the following:
According to an old article by NaturalNews:
The government of Denmark has banned the sale of fortified breakfast cereals made by Kellogg’s. These include Rice Krispies, Corn Flakes, and Special K. Why were they banned? Because they are fortified with vitamins like vitamin B6, B12, folic acid, iron and calcium.
That answers my question.
Is fortified food healthy? According to the Harvard School of Public Health:
Rather than giving up a daily multivitamin-multimineral supplement or taking it every other day as a way to prevent getting too much folic acid, a better strategy would be to get in the habit of taking a multivitamin-multimineral supplement every day and avoiding foods fortified with more than 100-200 micrograms of folic acid (25% to 50% of the % Daily Value).
