Riboflavin (also called Vitamin B2) is one of the 8 water-soluble vitamins.
It was discovered post thiamin and has a more heat-stable factor[1,2].
The body uses this vitamin to metabolize carbohydrates, fats, and protein into glucose for energy.
Riboflavin is absorbed more efficiently from plant-based foods than animal-based foods .
Toxicity is rare for this nutrient as it’s a water-soluble vitamin and the body removes excess amount instantly [1,2,4].
