You can search the web for information on that...

However, if you're looking to use B5 as a treatment for acne,you have to consume a high dose (smoething like 5000% daily value) and I doubt you can get that through foods alone.

Wouldn't hurt to look it up though.

B5 is found in foods (if you eat a healthy largely unprocessed diet), however it is pretty delicate. any processing/cooking/storing eliminates a large quantity of B5 from the food. This wasn't a problem when our ancestors picked food at about the time of eating, but since our salads sit in the grocery stores and are transported significant distances, you'd be best off taking a multivitamin (your diet is likely short on other B vitamins as well) that includes a decent amount of B5 (though you should still eat a healthy diet).
