Which foods are rich in vitamin B1 and how should they be supplemented?

Vitamin B1, also known as thiamine, is an essential water-soluble vitamin that the human body cannot synthesize by itself, and can only be supplemented through a daily diet.

Vitamin B1 is mainly involved in energy metabolism and glucose metabolism in the human body, as well as the normal operation of the nervous system, cardiovascular system, and digestive system. When vitamin B1 is deficient, a series of oxidative reactions in the body can be blocked, and harmful substances such as lactic acid and pyruvic acid are accumulated in the body.

1. Staple food containing starch

Starchy staple foods, such as whole-wheat flour, many types of rice, and legumes, are the main source of vitamin B1 in the diet.

2. In animal food

Lean pork and some offal are good sources of vitamin B1, but these foods are limited in daily intake. Compared with lean pork, other meats are slightly lower in vitamin B1, while fish, shrimp, and other aquatic products are generally lower in vitamin B1.

For those with vitamin B1 deficiency, dietary supplementation is recommended first. When dietary supplementation cannot meet the needs, vitamin B1 (100 mg/day) can be given for treatment, and the continuous medication should not exceed 1 month.
