4% CAGR of Global Vitamin Ingredients Market to 2019 Expected

Vitamins are organic compounds that are required by living organisms in minute quantities to maintain a normal metabolic activity. These compounds usually cannot be synthesized by the organism and have to be obtained through external sources. The term “vitamin” is a generic descriptor for a group of chemical compounds or ingredients that have similar molecular structure and have the capability to perform the required vitamin-activity. These chemical compounds or vitamin ingredients are often called as vitamers. There are thirteen different known types of vitamins with each type having multiple vitamers. For instance, Vitamin A has about six vitamers: retinol, retinal, and four other carotenoids.
