A 32-year-old member asked:
Please tell me if there are any cereals or other b12 fortified vegan foods using hydroxocobalamin (not cyanocobalamin)?

Probably not but...: As far as I know, all foods fortified with B12 are fortified with the cyanocobalamin form, as it is the least expensive.It is hard to know for sure, as the labels always just say B12 and don't specify the type. But if anyone is going to the extra expense of fortifying with hydroxocobalamin they are not telling us!
I advise vegans supplement with hyroxocobalamin or methylcobalamin. See comment:
