Trace amounts of organic compounds called vitamins are essential for the normal growth and health of organisms. The most common sources of Vitamins are food and/or dietary supplementation. Many believe that it controls many physiological functions of an organism. These physiological functions include primarily catalytic functions (coenzymes), controlling functions (hormone-like substances), and protection from free radical damage. Deficiency diseases caused by a lack of vitamins include circulatory disturbances, metabolic disorders, anemia, and muscular atrophy. As a result, buyers must know the vitamin contents in their foods because they need to understand and regulate how much of each is taken at any given time, this could be achieved through vitamin analysis. Knowledge based on thorough analysis of what various foods contain becomes essential for individual consumer’s efforts toward optimizing and maximizing daily intakes.”
Importance of Vitamin Analysis
For several reasons, vitamin analysis of food products is necessary.
Correct vitamin analysis ensures the honesty of nutritional labels on food and supplement items and regulatory compliance as well.
Vitamin analysis assists product development by allowing producers to develop products with the specified nutritional profiles.
Manufacturers use vitamin analysis to ensure that their products include the vitamins they claim.
Researchers and healthcare professionals use vitamin analysis to assess dietary intake and promote patient health.

The typical methods of vitamin analysis in food are the electrophoretic, chromatographic, immunological, spectrophotometric, fluorometric, and microbiological methods. CVR Labs has developed chromatographic techniques for analyzing vitamins.
Many chromatographic methods have well-developed vitamin analysis. The various technologies are namely LC: liquid chromatography, HPLC: high-performance liquid chromatography, UHPLC: ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography, nanoscale chromatography, and two-dimension chromatography GC. Examples of such chromatographic methods include ultraviolet/Visible, fluorescence, electrochemical, and mass spectrometry. The flexibility of chromatographic techniques provides multiple solutions to the vitamin characterization of foods.
