About Vitamin E:

Vitamin E is basically a group of 8 fat-soluble compounds, which includes 4 tocopherols and 4 tocotrienols. Vitamin E is known as a fat-soluble antioxidant protecting cell membranes from reactive oxygen species. It has little odour or taste and is insoluble in water. It is found in a wide variety of plants, especially green vegetables, grains, and oils including safflower and sunflower. It is rich in antioxidants, and thus, is utilised for several applications.

Production Processes

  • Production of Vitamin E via Plant Oils and Fats; via Vacuum Steam Distillation of Edible Vegetable Oil Products; and via Condensation of 2,3,6-Trimethylhydroquinone With Phytol.

The most significant natural sources of vitamin E are plant oils and fats. The deodorisation of edible oils yields as a byproduct deodoriser sludges that contain tocopherol (Vitamin E) concentrations (3-15%). Several methods are available for the purification of tocopherols. The fatty acids can be extracted and separated via distillation, preferably after esterification. After the elimination of the free fatty acids, the tocopherols can be concentrated by adsorption on basic ion exchangers.
