Global Mixed Tocopherols Market 2017-2021
About Mixed Tocopherol
Mixed tocopherols are the organic chemical compounds found in a variety of ecological sources such as vegetable oil, wheat germ oil, lettuce, alfalfa, nuts and seeds, and spinach. Mixed tocopherols contain four compounds such as alpha-tocopherols, beta-tocopherols, gamma-tocopherols, and delta-tocopherols. Alpha-tocopherol is an important ingredient of mixed tocopherols as it helps in the prevention of heart diseases due to its antioxidant properties. Gamma tocopherol is the largest chemical compound found in mixed tocopherols. It is extracted from soybean oils and soybean diets. Being the best source of natural vitamin E (NVE), it helps in the prevention of prostate cancer. Beta tocopherol helps in the prevention of cancer and improves the metabolic activities in human beings.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global mixed tocopherol market to grow at a CAGR of 4.84% during the period 2017-2021.

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Growing demand for mixed tocopherols as antioxidants. Mixed tocopherols are used in various food and beverage applications as preservatives, antioxidants, flavor protectants, and nutrient stabilizers. Mixed tocopherols contain compounds such as alpha tocopherol, beta tocopherol, gamma tocopherol, and delta tocopherol. Apart from these compounds, they contain four tocotrienol homologs.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Production complexity of mixed tocopherols. The production complexity is one of the major factors hindering the growth of the global mixed tocopherols market. This limits new manufactures to establish themselves in the market. Mixed tocopherols are obtained from vegetable oils. The production starts from edible oil refining process that yields deodorized distillates. The extraction of mixed tocopherols happens after multiple stages such as saponification desterilization, esterification, distillation, re-distillation, and the last step is the homolog conversion process.
