  title={Biotin content table of select foods and biotin intake in Japanese},
  author={Toshiaki Watanabe and Mio Kioka and Atsushi Fukushima},
Summary The biotin content of 500 select foods was determined by a microbiological assay in this study ''Himeji study'' and the biotin content of 955 foods was listed in the food composition table for biotin ''Biotin content table'', based on the combination of published data in Japan and foreign countries. Of these, the biotin contents of some foods such as peanuts, red peppers, liver (cattle, swine, and chicken), kidney (cattle), eggs (yolk), instant coffee, baker's yeast (dried), and…

Food Nutrition Immunoassay

This chapter summarized the immunoassay detection of vitamin B2, biotin, folic acid, and vitamin B12, mainly referring to antigen preparation, antibody characterization, immunoASSay establishment, and representative sample analysis.

Biochemical Studies on the Effect of Low and Excess Biotin Intakes on Female and Male Reproduction in Rodents

Low Maternal Biotin Intake Changes the Expression of biotin Transporter in Mice and Shoots down the Creatine/Biotin Receptor Receptor Tolerance Spectrum.



Determination of the biotin content of select foods using accurate and sensitive HPLC/avidin binding.

Low biotin content of infant formulas made in Japan.

The findings suggest that Japanese infant formulas should be appropriately improved to maintain growth and good health and biotin should be registered as a food additive in Japan so that it can be used to fortify infant formulas.

Estimated daily intake of biotin in hospital meals in Japan through dietary surveillance

The average intake of biotin in common meals for adults in the hospital exceeded the Adequate Intake (AI) for adults via the food group calculation sur - vey, but was not sufficient in meal for adults and pregnant/lactating women by the duplicate meals survey.

Effects of Excess Biotin Administration on the Growth and Urinary Excretion of Water-Soluble Vitamins in Young Rats

The results suggested immediately setting a tolerable upper intake level for biotin, and an accumulation of biotin in such tissues as the liver, brain and kidney increased in a dose-dependent manner, and the both bound and free biotin contents in the liver also increased.

Dietary intake of high‐dose biotin inhibits spermatogenesis in young rats

It is demonstrated that the long‐term intake of high‐dose biotin inhibited spermatogenesis in young male rats and the accumulation of biotin in the liver and testis increased in a dose‐dependent manner.

Estimate of the dietary intake of biotin in infants prescribed special therapeutic infant formulas in Japan

Biotin is one of the water-soluble vitamins which plays an important role as a covalently bound coenzyme for carboxylases in fatty acid synthesis, gluconeogenesis and branched-chain amino acids
