Excerpt from the book “Staying Healthy with Nutrition.”
A fairly recently designated B Vitamin, biotin was discovered by the deficiency symptoms created through consuming large amounts of raw eggs (about 30% of the diet). Avidin, a protein and carbohydrate molecule in the egg white, binds with biotin in the stomach and decreases its absorption. Cooking destroys the avidin, so the only concern about this interaction is with raw egg consumption. Otherwise, biotin is one
of the most stable of the B vitamins.
Many foods contain biotin, but most have only trace amounts. It is hard to obtain enough from diet alone. Luckily our friendly intestinal bacteria (lactobacillus) produce biotin. This vitamin is also found in egg yolks, liver, brewer’s yeast, unpolished rice, peanuts, almonds, carrots, tomato, chard, onion, cabbage, and milk.
The biotin coenzymes participate in the metabolism of fat. Biotin is needed for fat production and in the synthesis of fatty acids. These roles make biotin particularly important for formation of new tissue, especially skin tissue, because skin cells die and are replaced very rapidly.
