You may be deficient in VITAMIN B2
What is vitamin B2?
Vitamin B2 (otherwise called 'Riboflavin') was first observed in 1879 as a green pigment found in milk. It is not stored in the human body for any period of time and it is therefore important to include a regular dietary source of this vitamin.
Earlier names for this water soluble vitamin were lactoflavin, ovoflavin, hepatoflavin and verdoflavin, indicating the sources (milk, eggs, liver and plants) from which the vitamin was first isolated.
The use of ethylene oxide in food sterilisation can destroy riboflavin.
