This is a call for more research… According to a biological researcher I spoke with, the cyanocobalamin version of Vitamin B-12 is a derivative of cyanide. The woman told me that cyocobalamin is the kind most likely to be used in vitamins and enriched products like breakfast cereals and nutritional bars. It is cheaper to produce the researcher said, than the other healthier type, methylcobalamin. Cobalamin, she said, accumulates in the liver.

The past few weeks I have been noticing that supplements, cereals, even cat food, no longer is listing the type of Vitamin B12 that is put in the product. Unless it says methylcobalamin, it is probably the cheaper cyocobalamin.
