What is in your supplement?

So you take a supplemtn everyday to help make sure you are getting all of the vitamins and minerals that you need to stay healthy. But what is really in the little pill that you take? Or what is in the gummy that you give your child?

Well, I decided to test some vitamins by baking them.

My thoughts with this is that if we are consuming these supplements, they are food. And food should be able to bake in the oven for 10 minutes at 350*F.

I was assuming that the vitamins may brown evenly or for the gummies melt. What I didn't want to see was for part of them to turn black... or spontaneously combust...

Thankfully none of them spontaneously combusted but a few did turn black in certain areas. These were 2, 3 and 13. The picture is somewhat deceiving on 1- it turned brown evenly all of the way through.

Please let me know if you have any questions about these results or about vitamins in general. I do not know it all, or claim too, but I am here to help in anyway that you may need.
