Vitamin E is a light yellow oil, a fat-soluble vitamin, that is actually a family of compounds, the tocopherols, found in nature. Alphatoxopherol is the most common and the most active of the seven currently described forms-alpha, beta, gamma, delta, epsilon, and zeta. Specifically, d-alpha tocopherol is the most potent form. Vitamin E was first isolated from wheat germ oil, which is still a commonly used, rich source of vitamin E. The oil component of all grains, seeds, and nuts contain tocopherol. The protective covering or germ part of the grains is what contains the E, and this is lost easily in the milling of flour or in the refinement of grains. For the vitamin E to be preserved, extraction of the oils from nuts and seeds must be done naturally, by cold pressing.
