Milk is generally accepted as being one of the rich natural sources of riboflavin. Since milk is readily available, it is commonly recommended as an excellent source of riboflavin for the human dietary.

For instance, Williams, Cheldelin and Mitchell1 reported that Jersey milk contained as little as 0.53 mg. of riboflavin per liter, while Lindholm2 found as much as 7.8 mg. in Jersey milk.
