B-12 In Mushrooms - OFFICIAL

Postby Knight of Albion » Mon May 13, 2013 3:04 pm

I came across this article which I thought you might be interested in seeing.

Tired of hearing that there are no non-animal dietary sources of vitamin B-12? Well, no more...

TL;DR

Does it mention what is used to fertilise those mushrooms? There's a fair amount of B12 in pig shit...

You could always grow your own mushrooms.

I've never done it myself, though I am rather tempted. It looks fun, growing your own always is.

I had a look. You can grow them perfectly well without animal manure. Though if you do use animal manure, the recommendation from the article I saw was for horse manure.

Apparently mushrooms won't grow in soil/compost that contains chemical fertilisers.

I think the question is, do the mushrooms contain any b12 if you don't use animal manure?

Yep, that.

Not that growing your own mushrooms isn't a worthwhile activity; fun and tasty, but I'd still take a supp to keep my B12 intake up.

Someone bought me one of these for christmas a couple of years ago and it was awesome - the portobello version.

'Mushroom adventures' implies other activities if you ask me, but it was cool. The damn things double in size every day, it's pretty cool when you check on them in the AM and they are just enormous...

Most disagreements I have had about b12 have been with other vegans, not from non-vegans.

Interesting if you can get it from mushrooms, but supplementing it adequately is one of the easiest things you can do.

I agree. But a welcome response to those tiresome 'there are no non-animal dietary sources of vitamin B-12' jibes.
