Vitamins play an important role in the nutrition of man and animal. As early as 1897 Eijkman was able to demonstrate the symptoms of thiamine deficiency disease in birds. Since then, vitamins have been reguarded as one of the most essential factors in nutrition. Only small quantities in the diet are necessary, yet lack of any of them will inhibit the growth and produce certain kinds of deficiency diseases.
