Natural Source Vitamin E (Tocopherols and Tocotrienols) - A Global Market

Dublin, Oct. 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets
( has
announced the addition of the "Natural Source Vitamin E (Tocopherols and
Tocotrienols) - A Global Market Overview" report to their offering.

Natural Source Vitamin E, an important fat-soluble antioxidant that helps
fight free-radicals, offers a two-fold bioavailability and can be preserved
longer by the body tissues when compared to synthetic vitamin E. Moreover,
products and ingredients such as vitamins that carry the Natural tag have been
garnering increased consumer demand and becoming important considerations.
Concerns relating to toxic chemical additives by the consumers in products
such as food, beverages and personal care are fueling the rapid growth in
sales of natural vitamin E. Nutritional supplements followed by food &
beverage fortification being the current primary markets for natural vitamin
E, cosmetics and animal nutrition are projected to be the promising markets in
the near future.

Natural vitamin E market has been experiencing a major imbalance in supply and
demand from past few years as the prices of natural vitamin E have been
witnessed a substantial increase due to the several unifying factors. One
important reason cited for this spike in prices has been the supply shortage
of the primary raw material, deodorized distillates, that goes into
manufacturing natural vitamin E. Players in the natural vitamin E space are in
the process of scrutinizing alternative means of production that could offset
the supply-demand imbalance, though nothing concrete seems to have come up for
generating an added supply in the future. While a few companies are aiming to
bypass the issue of supply, yet others are exploring alternate sources such as
deodorized distillates from rapeseed, palm oils and mixed sources to extract
natural vitamin E.
