B12 is something that is not naturally available in a plant based diet. It is produced by bacteria in the large intestines. The good news is we have water treated to prevent outbreaks of disease. The other good news is it is easy to find ways to add it to the diet through supplements. Some brands of Nutritional yeast are fortified with B12. Locally we have found it at the Urban Marketplace, The Water Bug and Superstore. We use two brands, Artisan and Purely Bulk. Both companies have been contacted and state they are fortified.

We sprinkle this over pasta dishes and salads.
