Vitaminized Candy

Vitaminized Candy Popular in Russia

 

                Lack of green vegetables during the long Russian winters holds less concern for vitamin-minded Soviet housewives with the development of the chemical industry. They feed their children vitaminized candy.

Moscow, Leningard and Rostov vitamin factories last year turned out 3,500,000 doses of vitamin C and in 1936 are scheduled to produce thirteen million doses.

This year two Moscow and one Leningard candy factories will turn out 800 tons of vitaminized candy.

Four factories for the production for the carrotin, from carrots and potatoes, used in treatment of certain diseases of the eye and in building up general bodily resistance, will be constructed soon.
