Vitamin B12 in chlorella?
Posted Friday, December 28, 2012 at 11:26 PM

I take Sun Chlorella. Its label says it has a daily dosage of vitamin B12 in it, yet it also says it is pure chlorella. Does this mean that B12 is available from this plant source? Or are they fortifying the product with B12?

Can you see how much B12 is in the product (in micrograms)? That may be telling. If it has less than 5 mcgs then it's probably naturally occurring. If it is has more than 100 mcgs then it's probably added. If you can find a customer number on their website give them a call and ask. It can't hurt.
