The increased awareness of general health and wellness and government support has led to significant rise in production and consumption of fortified foods. As dexpanthenol or D-panthenol rapidly oxidizes to pantothenic acid after entering the organism, it is one of the important ingredient included in the fortified food formula to deliver pantothenic acid or vitamin B5. Manufacturers usually provide a liquid form of D-panthenol as a source of pro-vitamin B5 for the processed food to be fortified.
