Introduction. Today, a number of scientific studies are being carried out in Uzbekistan on the selection of medicinal plants and their reasonable use, in particular, medicinal species of amaranth cultivated in our country, having a sufficient raw material base, are in the center of attention of scientists. Material and methods. This research work is devoted to the identification and determination of the amount of vitamins in the seeds and oil of amaranth tailed, grown in the Andijan region of the Republic of Uzbekistan. Resuts. The research work was carried out using high-performance liquid chromatography-mass spectroscopy (LС-MS), which is considered one of the modern analytical methods, and 12 vitamins were tested, 8 of which were fixed in the contents of the seeds and 4 in the oil. content. High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) determined the amounts of vitamin E and vitamin D3, which were found to be the most retained among vitamins in oil, and obtained results of pharmaceutical significance. Conclusion. According to the results of the study, it was concluded that amaranth seeds contain vitamins D3, E, B9, B1, B2, B5, B6, C, of which only D3, E, B9, B6 passed into its oil.
