tempeh does not contain any reliable amounts of B12.. traditionally prepared tempeh outside of the United States is said to possibly contain small amounts, but the tempeh produced in the US would not.. also, it may be an analog variety of B12, which isn’t used by our bodies and actually can take up receptors that the active form of B12 would otherwise attach to..
I myself supplement, 1000mg of methyl cobalamin every 3 or 4 days as a chewable/sublingual tablet
I eat nutritional yeast, fortified soymilks, and take a multivitamin.
I use individual packets of Now Foods B12 as they are easy to throw into my purse and take to work with me for some extra energy during the day. I also love to make scrambled tofu with lots of nutritional yeast, potatoes, and other veggies!
Variety is truly the spice of life. So I get my B12 in various ways; a sublingual tablet 2-3 days a week, fortified non-dairy milks, and using Red Star’s fortified nutritional yeast in cooking, and as a condiment. I sprinkle it on salads and popcorn, use it in making walnut or almond vegan parmesan, and in making salad dressing.
I dig food sources whenever possible (plant-based, mais c’est naturel) and generally procure nutritional yeast and top food off like so, with occasional supplemmentation, though I stick the garden of life raw b-12, great company.
sublingual B12. I ahve never tried nutritional yeast, I think I need to check it out.
I have taken B12 supplements since adopting a vegan diet in Dec. 2011. (blood tests said levels were low) I have not bought or tried nutritional yeast – although many recipes in my vegan cookbooks call for it. I prefer almond milk over soy, rice or coconut. Is there any B12 in almonds? I would guess you would have to sprinkle some in your foods every day to make sure that you are receiving enough of the supplement. I can really tell when I’m low – very fatigued!
I love my nutritional yeast! We eat it on all kinds of things….pizza, popcorn, veggies and so much more. Both my cats love the stuff!
I prefer to get B-12 through the food I eat. It is very easy for me to do it because of being dairy-free and a former cheeseaholic.
We are regular popcorn eaters with melted Earth Balance, Nutritional Yeast, salt and Vegan Parmesean…..a hefty dose of nutritional yeast ensures that we get our B12, and then some. Plus its super tasty, so addictive we had to ban it before the wedding to keep our weight in check..lol
I eat nooch so much, that Nooch became my nickname!
In addition, I take sublingual B12, and do B12 injections every so often.
I eat TONS of B12-fortified nooch. I love the stuff. I eat it on popcorn, soups, nachos, everything. It’s the best! My four-year-old daughter loves it so much, she calls it “tasty cheese” and she eats it right out of the bag.
I once read that there is B12 in (i know its gross) slightly rotting greens– anyone else ever hear of this?
