natural source d-alpha tocopheryl acetate powder
Natural source d-alpha tocopheryl acetate powder, or RRR-d-alpha tocopheryl acetate, is a natural source form of Vitamin E obtained from vacuum steam distillation of edible vegetable oil products. It is spray dried with a food grade excipient and used in food applications as a water dispersible source of Vitamin E. It can also be used as a source of Vitamin E in tableting applications.
Natural source d-alpha tocopheryl acetate is different from synthetic Vitamin E. Since synthetic Vitamin E is produced by chemical reactions from petrochemicals, it contains additional reaction products (stereoisomers) not normally found in nature. For this reason, natural source Vitamin E contains two times the Vitamin E activity of synthetic Vitamin E on a weight basis.
Natural source d-alpha tocopheryl acetate powder is a white, granular form of Vitamin E with very little odor or flavor. It is more stable than non-acetate forms of tocopherols. Storage practices for d-alpha tocopheryl acetate powder should include avoiding elevated storage temperatures and exposure to alkaline substances.
Natural source d-alpha tocopheryl acetate powder is produced using tocopheryl acetate which conforms to FCC requirements, is produced under certified ISO 9001, 14001 and 22000 programs, and is certified Kosher and Halal. A food grade excipient is used during spray drying of the product. Non-GM products are available on request.
