A fat-soluble vitamin that is essential for normal reproduction; an important antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals in the body.


Natural mixed tocopherols (forms of vitamin E), can help maintain the freshness and shelf life of products. They are a natural alternative to synthetic antioxidants, such as BHT, BHA and TBHQ. One benefit is that consumer-friendly label claims and ingredient legends declaring “Natural vitamin E added to preserve freshness” or “Natural vitamin E added to protect flavor” can be used.

Mixed tocopherols are resistant to high temperature food processing steps, and have low volatility and good solubility in fats and oils. They have been tested in many applications including baked goods, cereals, dehydrated potatoes, nuts and fried noodles (ramen) and in foods such as meat and egg products and tuna fillets.


According to my sources, it seems that there are many different forms of this, tocopherols are the more natural forms of vitamin E, as opposed to Tocotreinols. Natural sources of Vitamin E are helpful in skin, hair and nail health.
