Quantitative Aspects of Vitamin Metabolism

  • Anders Kallner
Part of the Nutrition and Food Science book series (NFS, volume 3)


Usually, quantitation of vitamin metabolism aims at determining the requirement of the vitamin for man or animal. It is anticipated that during the course of its action, the vitamin is metabolized. Even if this is largely so, it may not be the whole truth and at least theoretically a substantial amount of vitamin may be absorbed, distributed into various pools and finally excreted as such after having exerted its physiological functions.
