Abstract

IN the issue of NATURE of June 3, 1915, there is an interesting discussion on the presence of “vitamines” in butter and in margarine. The writer of the article on “Modern Substitutes for Butter” states that butter fat is the only fat or oil in which American investigators have shown the presence of vitamines, and he further states that vitamines are closely associated with lipoids, and that it is doubtful whether vitamines could be formed during lactic fermentation.
