Riboflavin (a.k.a. Vitamin B2, Lactoflavin, Vitamin G, Ovoflavin, Lyochrome, Hepatoflavin, Uroflavin) is a vitamin widely found in plant and animal cells. It occurs in its free form in eye’s retina, in whey, and in urine, but it fulfills its metabolic function mainly in complex forms. First isolated back in the 1930s, Riboflavin was produced for the first time only in 1940, by fermentation from the residue of butanol–acetone fermentation. Over the years, this vitamin has been produced via chemical synthesis and fermentation for different uses and applications, mainly related to therapeutic uses and for poultry and livestock feeds.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Riboflavin production costs. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q2 2023).
