Nature source d-alpha tocopheryl acetate powder, or RRR-d-alpha tocohperyl acetate, is a natural source form of Vitamin E obtained from vacuum steam distillation of edible vegetable oil products. It is prepared with feed excipient and used in animal nutrition applications where a granular source of Vitamin E is desired.
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 Vitamin E can be used for supplementation during critical life stages in certain species where only the RRR-form of d-alpha tocopherol is recognized.
Natural source d-alpha tocopheryl acetate powder for feed is a light yellow powder form of Vitamin E. 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 and is produced under certified ISO 9001, 14001, 22000 and FAMI-QS programs. Non-GM products are available on request.
