    I've always been curious about this too but could never get a straight answer. I did a little more digging today and stumbled on a paper from the '70s which says that most of the B12 found in the diet is actually in the form of adenosylcobalamin:

    I just found an even more detailed paper on it which gives relative amounts of each form. "o" means none detected, and the more "+", the more there is. Not exact but should give you a rough idea.

    Interesting point:
    There's a bunch more information on absorption and such in the full paper. I highly recommend checking it out if you're in to that sort of thing.

    You can get a PDF of it here: http://journals.cambridge.org/actio...ge=online&aid=838812&fileId=S0007114576000147

    Thanks a lot, @mgk ! I read the article, very informative. Glad liver was in there since I don't tolerate eggs or milk at the moment.
