The were more than tenfold that in the food consumed per day by Thus most of the corrinoid in the feces must be synthesized by not the main site of corrinoid production. Analyses of corrinoid were performed for the food and the feces of various animals obtained from a zoo. The corrinoid concentrations were low in the food and high in the feces of herbivores. The ratio of cobalamin to the analogs in the feces was high in herbivores. Thus the cobalamin contained in the feces of herbivores should be utilized. Corrinoid in rat feces was easily soluble in water, and was taken up by a seaweed, nori (Porphyra tenera), quite rich seaweed by cultivating it with rabbit feces added. Then we feed domestic animals the cobalamin-rich seaweed to get cobalamin-rich meat or milk.
