Vitamin E Buyers Guidebook


When supplement, food or cosmeceutical manufacturers select a supplier for their vitamin E products, they must take note of the different forms (alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-tocopherol, and alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-tocotrienol), as well as delivery forms that are suited to vitamin E absorption and consumer preference.

  • Vitamin E contains tocotrienols and tocopherols, each backed with their own health benefits.
  • Chemically distinct compounds in tocopherols and tocotrienols offer unique biological effects.
  • A number of potential interactions with vitamin E exist.
