Vegetarians are at high risk of vitamin B12 deficiency
Since vegetarians have a lower intake of vitamin B12 (B12) than non-vegetarians, they are at increased risk of deve­loping B12 deficiency. The less animal products the food contains the worse the B12 status. However, even lacto-ovo-vegetarians run the risk of becoming deficient in B12. Vege­tarians are recommended regularly to take supplements of B12, and they should be informed of the lacking content of B12 of plant products and the hazards of B12 deficiency. Furthermore, vegetarians should routinely be checked for possible B12 deficiency.
