ADM Enhances Naturally Sourced Vitamin E Range

Archer Daniels Midland Company, one of the world’s largest agricultural processors and food ingredient providers, has strengthened its offering with two new natural source vitamin E products, Novatol® Sunflower 5-67 Vitamin E and Novatol® Sunflower Vitamin E Succinate. The two new ingredients are derived from non-GMO sunflower oil and add to ADM’s existing Novatol® range.

The latest additions to ADM’s portfolio offer continued flexibility in formulating premium-quality food, beverage and dietary supplement products at some of the highest concentrations available.

D-alpha tocopherol is the only form of alpha tocopherol found in nature, and it is also better retained by the body than synthetic vitamin E. With a low viscosity and high d-alpha tocopherol concentration, Novatol® Sunflower 5-67 Vitamin E is ideal for soft gel capsules, as well as food and beverage fortification purposes. However, when exposed to air or intense processing temperatures, the esters of d-alpha tocopherol have reduced susceptibility to degradation allowing for increased flexibility in product formulations. These benefits have given rise to the creation of d-alpha tocopheryl acid succinate, the world’s first commercially available sunflower-based succinate form of vitamin E. This high-concentration powder is neutral in taste and is ideal for tableting applications such as multivitamins and chewable tablets. Both of the latest Novatol® products are non-GMO, they do not contain soy, and are Kosher and Halal certified.

“Our Novatol® natural source vitamin E products provide manufacturers with a safe and reliable source of supply and are also available in a wide range of manufacturer-friendly formats for capsule, tablet and compounding applications,” said Mike Zora, general manager for ADM’s WILD Flavours & Specialty Ingredients business unit. “With our naturally sourced vitamin E solutions, we can help manufacturers address many consumer health concerns such as the protection of cells from oxidative stress and the increase of antioxidant activity.”
