What is Thiamine Mononitrate?  Thiamin or thiamine is a type of vitamin B. Thiamine mononitrate is commonly referred to as vitamin B1. This form of vitamin B is known as ‘aneurin’ in Europe and the UK. It is the nitrate salt form of thiamine and it is present in various multivitamins. The chemical formula that describes this element is C12H17N5O4S. Its molecular weight is 327.36. It comes in the form of white-yellowish, water soluble, crystal powder.

Sources of Thiamine  Yeast, pork and beef contain significant amounts of thiamine. Cereal grains that are available everywhere throughout the year, are one of the important dietary sources of thiamine. Oatmeal, flaxseed, sunflower seeds, raisins, brown rice, whole grain rye, asparagus, kale, beans, peanuts, cauliflower, baked potatoes, oranges, liver (beef, pork and chicken), beef kidneys, salmon steak, fortified flour, breads, cereals and eggs are some other thiamine rich foods.

The salt thiamine mononitrate, rather than thiamine hydrochloride, is used for food fortification, as the mononitrate is more stable, and does not absorb water from natural humidity (is non-hygroscopic), whereas thiamine hydrochloride is hygroscopic. When thiamine mononitrate dissolves in water, it releases nitrate (about 19% of its weight) and is thereafter absorbed as the thiamine cation.
