WHERE TO FIND VITAMINÂ There are eight different types of B vitamins: B1 known as thiamine, B2 known as riboflavin, B3 known as niacin, B5 known as pantothenic, B6 known as pyridoxine, B7 known as biotin, B9 known as folic acid, and B12 known as cobalamins. With the exception of B12 and B9, the B vitamins are not easily stored in the body. Most are water soluble meaning they break down easily in water and alcohol and during cooking. So making sure that you consume enough Vitamin B is crucial.
1 Vitamin B1 can be found naturally in breads and grains, legumes, wheat germ, nuts and pork.
