Vitamin E

An antioxidant that protects your cells from damage.


tocopherols & tocotrienols


10mg (RDI)


Vitamin E describes a family of eight antioxidants: four tocopherols and four tocotrienols. Alpha-tocopherol is the form that is preferentially absorbed and accumulated in your body. Vitamin E protects cells against damage and is important for growth. Although vitamin E is sensitive to light, heat and oxygen there appears to be minimal loss with cooking. Because it is fat soluble there is little leaching into cooking water.


Veggy tip

Try to cook with a just single layer of vegetables in your pan at a time. Overcrowding prevents even cooking and you run the risk of ending up with mushy veg on the bottom.
