Abstract

Vitamin B12, or cyanocobalamin, is an important biological compound active as a hematopoietic factor in mammals and as a growth factor for many microbial and animal species. This study was directed on the use of the different concentrations of locally produced vitamin B12 from coconut water. These concentrations consisted of 100ug, 200ug, 300ug, 400ug and 500utg. Two controls were added consisting of the commercial feed and the feed without the concentration of the locally produced vitamin B12. The rats' daily gain in weight were measured and compared with their daily food consumption. This study used 21 rat models, which were divided into seven groups supplemented with different concentrations of locally produced vitamin B12. Based on the given data, it was found that the locally produced vitamin B12 in an appropriate concentration can replace the vitamin B12 coming from the other countries, and can be added to the commercial feed instead of the imported vitamin B12 in a lesser amount of money.
