Halacha - bracha on vitamins
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: The Shulchan Aruch in siman204 says that a food taken as a medicine that tastes good, requires a bracha. Therefore, if one has a sore throat and drinks a hot tea, he would be obligated to make a bracha. What is that status of something thatis only taken for health benefits but also has a pleasant taste? For example: vitamins. Noone takes vitamins when they are hungry. It is not a food. but it doesn't taste bad. Would it require a bracha? or since it is not food, no bracha is needed? Thank you
Answer: A flavored chewable vitamin requires a Beracha.
