Vitamins

Product description

Vitamins are organic compounds that are vital for the body, however the body cannot produce them itself in sufficient quantity. They must therefore be provided by an external source. It is important to differentiate between fat-soluble and water-soluble vitamins. Fat-soluble vitamins can be stored by the body and can be associated with diseases in cases of excessive or insufficient dosing, whereas water-soluble vitamins are secreted in cases of inadequate supply.

The notion of prevention and growing health awareness of the population are the main indicators of the market potential of vitamins as food supplements.

The areas of application of vitamins are extremely diverse, they are used in particular in feed, food and in the cosmetics industry.
