Vitamins are essential (life-giving and vital) nutritional elements as they undertake important functions in the human organism. Alongside the natural vitamins, synthetic vitamins are also added to foodstuffs during the production and processing stages.
Declaration of these vitamins in Switzerland depends on the product and is regulated in the “Ordinance of the Swiss Federal Department of Home Affairs via the Addition of Essential or Physiologically Useful Substances to Foodstuffs” from 23/11/2005 and in the “Ordinance of the Swiss Federal Department of Home Affairs over Special Foodstuffs” from 23/11/2005.
