Thiamine Mononitrate, also known as vitamin B1 nitrate, is a white to slightly yellow crystal or crystalline powder.
Thiamine Mononitrate is used as a nutritional supplement. Because Thiamine Mononitrate has less water solubility than hydrochloride and is more stable to alkali, it is more stable than hydrochloride when used for food fortification.
