What is RiboFlavin? ?!

Question: What is RiboFlavin? ?
It says in the ingredients of a soup riboflavin and I'm wondering what it is??


Riboflavin, also known as vitamin B2 or additive E101, is an easily absorbed micro nutrient with a key role in maintaining health in humans. It is the central component of the co factors FAD and FMN, and is therefore required by all flavoproteins. As such, vitamin B2 is required for a wide variety of cellular processes. It plays a key role in energy metabolism, and for the metabolism of fats, ketone bodies, carbohydrates, and proteins.

Milk, cheese, leafy green vegetables, liver, kidneys, legumes, tomatoes, yeast, mushrooms, and almonds are good sources of vitamin B2, but exposure to light destroys riboflavin.

Vitamin B2.

Isn't that what killed Superman
