Vitamin B1 (Thiamin)

100% grapefruit juice can be a good source of thiamin providing 9-11% of the daily value for thiamin in an 8-ounce serving.  Smaller amounts can be found in a serving of whole grapefruit (4% DV).

  • Eat grapefruit for energy! They deliver thiamin, a water-soluble B vitamin that is associated with the action of many of the body’s enzymes and in the conversion of food into energy.1,2
  • Very little thiamin is stored in the body, and because it is used up quickly, frequent consumption of thiamin from the diet is necessary.1,2
