I would pay a non partial company to test various probiotics that claim to produce B-12, to see which are reliable and also to test the regular bacteria on plants and in the air to see how much B-12 they produce, when you make your own rejuvelac. The goal would be to figure out a way for laypeople and basically poor people to make their own at home without having to buy a professional probiotic. But if a purchase was necessary, to make sure which strain is correct.
I would do a series of testing on many vitamins, including D, the B-s, and also on oxalic acid and the different calciums from a vegan perspective. The problem with research is that often people have a bias starting out: they want to sell a product or they want to push an agenda. The only question and not really an agenda is can laypeople get their vitamins and minerals from their own work (like with sprouting and culturing) versus needing to buy supplements?
THen I would publish my finding in a book with recipes and teach classes.

If a layperson can do this at home, then it lends credibility that this diet is actually natural and sustainable and proves that it is natural for humans. These tests have been done before, but where are they easily accessible in one book?

Also, money has to be spent on maximally streamlining the whole operation to make it as time efficient as possible.

Also, I would never push the raw is law concept, because as I said, too many raw vegans cross over into raw meat eating and that is a disaster for human beings. Hippocrates found that 25% cooked is okay for the immune system. Also you can't eat some herbs raw. Some herbs are essential in medicine. Absolute rawism is dangerous. Look at the poor Africans living on cassava, which must be cooked. So many Africans have been poisoned by raw cassava. So those people who can be 100% raw are the lucky but the others who can't be shouldn't develop a guilt complex. But if people can understand that eating a mainly raw diet is best for their immune system, that is significant.

Also I have an account with Metametrix and I would love to be able to test a bunch of raw vegans or (high rawists) for their amino acid and nutrient profiles and keep playing with diet to see what is able to balance them, because still people doubt that vegan protein is adequate. Metametrix is great with these tests, but they are a little spendy, so few people can afford to do regular tests.

Now that I think of it, there is a ton of things I would like to test, too much to list here.
