Chemical Information
FooDB NamePangamic acid
DescriptionIsolated from apricot kernel, also said to be present in cereals etc. Said to be a vitamin of significance in, inter alia, hypertension control Pangamic acid is also known as vitamin B15, but it is not widely accepted as a vitamin for it has not been shown to be essential in the human diet, and a deficiency in consumption of pangamic acid is not known to be associated with any disease.; Pangamic acid is an ester derived from gluconic acid and dimethylglycine. It was first isolated by Ernst T. Krebs from apricot kernels, and has since been identified in some foods such as pulsesand is also found in rice bran & apricot kernels.
