Vitamin B5, also known as pantothenic acid, is found in all animal and vegetable foods, so it is not seen much in humans. Nevertheless, the most common conditions are missing: convulsions, abdominal pain and bowel disorders, sleep disorders, fatigue, depression, tingling and trembling of the hands and feet, and skin disorders. If pantetol is taken too much, the risk of diarrhea and bleeding increases. However, these risks arise when vitamin B5 is taken as an extra food supplement rather than when taken as normal from food.

Daily amounts of pentatol (vitamin B5) recommended by experts are generally as follows: 1 mg up to age in infants, 1,8 mg up to age in children, 8 mg up to age in 3, 13 mg up to age in 4 mg, 5 mg in adolescents and adults.

Pantothenic acid is most commonly found in the following foods: 7,1 mg in sunflower seeds, 3,6 mg in fungus, 3,4 mg in goat cheese, 2,2 mg in fatty fish, 1,6 mg in red meat, 1,5 mg in egg, 1,5 mg in avocado and 1,3 mg in chicken and turkey meat. mg.

In addition, milk and dairy products, lentils, tomatoes, broccoli and cauliflower in foods such as vitamin B5 is also available.

In the authorized laboratories, pantothenic acid, vitamin B5 or pantetol determination in foods are carried out within the scope of chemical tests. The most commonly used method in these studies is to use High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC). This method provides reliable results in the separation of non-volatile or easily degradable chemical compounds at temperature.

In these studies, the standards prepared by the organizations operating in our country and in foreign countries and the analysis methods and test criteria accepted in the world are followed and reliable and impartial service is provided in the laboratories.
