Vitamin B1 - Thiamin

Vitamin B1 - Thiamin Information

Vitamin B1, also known as thiamine, was the first of the B vitamins to be discovered. It was isolated in 1926 as a water soluble, crystalline yellowish white powder with a salty, slightly nutty taste. Scientists now know that vitamin B1 plays an important role in producing energy for the body's cells. Because it is water soluble, thiamine is not stored in the body and must be supplied daily. In adults, chronic dieting, alcoholism, and diets consisting primarily of highly processed, refined foods are causes of thiamine deficiency.
