Natural-Source Vitamin EADM is the largest producer of Natural Source Vitamin E and Mixed Tocopherols. The natural form of vitamin E, d-alpha-tocopherol, is better retained by the body compared to the synthetic form (dl-alpha-tocopherol). The bioavailability (availability for use by the body) is 2:1 for natural-source vitamin E over synthetic vitamin E.
ADM has the broadest vitamin E product line, with alcohols, acetates and succinates in a wide range of manufacturer-friendly forms for capsule, tablet and compounding applications. We offer powder formulations specifically designed for better flow and compressibility.

Mixed Tocopherols - Mixed tocopherols are antioxidants found in nature and are used in fats, oils, and in a wide range of fat-containing food and feed products. Mixed tocopherols contain natural mixtures of d-alpha, beta, gamma and delta tocopherols.
d-Alpha Tocopherol - d-alpha tocopherol is the form of tocopherol that is better retained. It is the only form of alpha tocopherol found in nature. The low viscosity and high concentration make d-alpha tocopherol ideal for soft gel capsules.
d-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate - The esters of d-alpha tocopherol have reduced susceptibility to degradation when exposed to air or elevated processing temperatures; these particular benefits allow for flexibility in product formulations. It is d-alpha tocopheryl acetate that has been used by ADM in developing our water-dispersible Natural-Source Vitamin E.
d-Alpha Tocopheryl Acid Succinate - The esters of d-alpha tocopherol have reduced susceptibility to degradation when exposed to air or elevated processing temperatures; these particular benefits allow for flexibility in product formulations. d-alpha tocoheryl succinate is a high concentration powder perfectly suited for tableting applications.
