Chromatograms of Natural vs Synthetic Products

What Is a Chromatogram?

Chromatograms have been used in urine tests for quite some time. Ehrenfried E. Pfeiffer, M.D., perfected it to graphically show that even though soil sample may have the same chemical makeup, they differed in their biological values (yield, protein quality, seed germination, etc.). This breakthrough explained why some soils yielded better crops than others.

This same technique can be used to differentiate between two foods or two vitamins, they may look the same chemically but often times they do not look the same biologically or qualitatively.

The technique is similar to taking a urine analysis with test strips. The juice –an extract is made– of a certain substance is placed on specially manufactured filter paper and by using a chemical agent an image is displayed. The image, through difference in colors, rings, spike like forms, etc. can than be interpreted to determine its qualitative and biological values.

How Can We Use Chromatograms In Nutrition?

In Nature, every living thing has a purpose but also a very distinct pattern in a chromatogram. You can see the biological activity of an organic substance on the chromatogram. The fresher the substance the greater the activity and the more prominent the enzyme formations are. Most inorganic mineral, chemical or synthetic vitamins show only varied colored rings with no distinct patterns because they are not alive.

The following chromatograms illustrate the very distinct differences between natural and synthetic vitamins and some common food items.

These chromatograms show that Nature does something that cannot be duplicated by man. Even when the chemical analysis is identical, you can easily see that in the synthetic version, there is definitely something missing.

VitC-10a

 

VitC-10b

1a. Pure Commercial Vitamin C (ascorbic acid)

 

1b. Acerola–tropical cherry natural Vitamin C

Typical color and rings of ascorbic acid — no
biological activity

 

Jagged border and strong radiations, indicative of natural factors and vitamin and mineral activity.

     
VitE-11a
 
VitE-11b
2a. Alpha – tocopherol commercial Vitamin E only a part of complete E complex.
 
2b. Wheat Germ Oil unheated — excellent source of Vitamin E
Intrinsic factors cannot show up because of refined state.
 
In addition to Alpha-Tocopherol other fatty acids and enzymes indicated — note similarity to butter.
     
VitA-12a
 
VitA-12b
3a. Synthetic Vitamin A made from refined and chemically altered lemon grass root.
 
3b. Cod Liver Oil — excellent source of Vit. A & D.
We miss here the winged or leaf pattern which shows up in natural products.
 
Note wings or leaf pattern found in all natural oils or fats as butter and wheat germ oil above.
     
VitB-13a
 
VitB-13b
4a.Complete synthetic Vitamin B complex — mixture of known parts.
 
4b. Natural ‘B’ complex
No spike like enzyme formations
 
Thin outer rim, long jagged teeth indicate intrinsic factors, good protein & strong enzyme activity.
     
vitamins-synthetic-14a
 
vitamins-natural-14b
5a. Mixture of synthetic vitamins & inorganic
minerals.
 
5b. Mixture of natural vitamins and minerals of the “vitamins and minerals” chemically reproduced in 5a.
Utterly lacking in biological intrinsic factors or any spike enzyme formation.
 
Center radiation & jagged spike formations show excellent intrinsic factors, vitamin & enzyme activity.
     
OJ-08a
 
OJ-08b
6a.A popular soft drink
 
6b. Fresh orange juice organically grown.
Outer edge shows the sugar
 
Outer zone indicates presence of enzymes & Vitamin C, also color of inner circle shows more Vitamin C.
margarine-butter-09a
 
margarine-butter-09b
7a. Margarine
 
7b. Butter, fresh home-made from un pasteurized milk
Lacks vitamin & enzyme formation — its value best judged by comparison with Butter 9b.”
 
See the winged pattern and color of many intrinsic factors and vitamin influences
     
milk-07a
 
milk-07b
8a. Pasteurized milk
 
8b. Raw milk-whole
Paler, less definite formations than 8b indicating some
loss of factors.
 
Pattern of outer edge & protrusions from edge to center indicate proteins, vitamins & minerals.
     
Sugar-05a
 
sugar-05b
9a. Synthetic sugar – glucose (dextrose) mostly used in presweetened foods
 
9b. Molasses-old fashioned
Corn sugar chemically refined — brown color shows sugar reaction — yellow shows some other reaction.
 
More vitamins indicated by wider more undulating outer zone & slight radiating inner field.
     
flour-06a
 
flour-06b
10a. White flour – bleached
 
10b. Whole unbleached flour-organically grown
Little is left of original quality of the wheat seeds. Vitamin and enzyme formations lacking.
 
Contains intrinsic factors, vitamins & enzymes of the germ — spikes of inner circle indicate enzymes.
