Broth from canned clams is suitable for use as an excellent source of free vitamin b(12).
Summary of "Broth from canned clams is suitable for use as an excellent source of free vitamin b(12)."
Vitamin B(12) was assayed and characterized in the broth of canned clams (boiled plain). The broth contained considerable amounts of vitamin B(12) (2.7-14.1 μg/100 g, 1.3-6.7 μg/can). HPLC and LC/ESI-MS/MS chromatograms demonstrated that the clam broth contained true vitamin B(12). Gel filtration experiments indicated that most (72%) of the vitamin B(12) found in the broth was recovered in free vitamin B(12) fractions. These results indicate that the clam broth would be suitable for use an excellent source of free vitamin B(12) for elderly persons with food-bound vitamin B(12) malabsorption.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The dry cells of any suitable strain of SACCHAROMYCES CEREVISIAE or CANDIDA. It can be obtained as a by-product from the brewing of beer or by growing on media not suitable for beer production. Dried yeast serves as a source of protein and VITAMIN B COMPLEX.
Americium. A completely man-made radioactive actinide with atomic symbol Am, atomic number 95, and atomic weight 243. Its valence can range from +3 to +6. Because of its nonmagnetic ground state, it is an excellent superconductor. It is also used in bone mineral analysis and as a radiation source for radiotherapy.
Fatty Acid Transport Proteins
A broad category of membrane transport proteins that specifically transport FREE FATTY ACIDS across cellular membranes. They play an important role in LIPID METABOLISM in CELLS that utilize free fatty acids as an energy source.
A 34-amino acid polypeptide antibiotic produced by Streptococcus lactis. It has been used as a food preservative in canned fruits and vegetables, and cheese.
Removal of toxins or metabolites from the circulation by the passing of blood, within a suitable extracorporeal circuit, over semipermeable microcapsules containing adsorbents (e.g., activated charcoal) or enzymes, other enzyme preparations (e.g., gel-entrapped microsomes, membrane-free enzymes bound to artificial carriers), or other adsorbents (e.g., various resins, albumin-conjugated agarose).
OBJECTIVES: Dietary intake of tin has seldom been studied in children although they probably have a high intake. This study was initiated to investigate dietary tin intake (Sn-D) of children in Japan....
