What Are The Specifications Of Vitamin E?

There are 8 members of the vitamin E family, divided into 2 categories:

  • 4 kinds of Tocopherol: α-Tocopherol, β-Tocopherol, γ-Tocopherol, δ-Tocopherol
  • 4 kinds of Tocotrienols: α-Tocotrienols, β-Tocotrienols, γ-Tocotrienols, δ-Tocotrienols

Among them, the α-Tocopherol content is the highest, and the biological activity is the largest. The activity of β-Tocopherol, γ-Tocopherol, and δ-Tocopherol is 50%, 10%, and 2%of α-Tocopherol, respectively. The activity of α-Tocotrienols is about 30%of α-Tocopherol.

The specifications of vitamin E are usually represented by international units (IU). Each of the above eight types is divided into different IUs.

For example, Vitamin E (D-Alpha Tocopherol) (500IU/G 630 IU/G, etc.)

The specifications of the mixed specifications are as follows:

D-Mixed Tocopherols powder, which includes 4 kinds of mixture D-α-Tocopherol, D-β-Tocopherol, D-γ-Tocopherol, and D-δ-Tocopherol.

D-Mixed Tocotrienols powder, which includes 4 kinds of mixture D-α-Tocotrienol, D-β-Tocotrienol, D-γ-Tocotrienol, D-δ-Tocotrienol.

Vitamin E Still Has Many Derivatives.

The shelf life of α-Tocopherol is generally two years, and the color and color of the color will not change within two years. However, the α-Tocopherol acetate obtained after α-Tocopherol Phenolone will be more stable, and the shelf life can reach five years.

Because the phenolic hydroxyl group is protected after ester, no phenols are not easily oxidized. As a result, it is more convenient to stabilize the storage and transportation of Tocopherol products. Both acetate and alter are α-Tocopherol esters.
