Vitamin E, Tocopherol, Tocopheryl Acetate - What's The Deal With These?

I've been reading and searching and asking since I've started ditching stuff from my household and this is one topic I can't seem to get a straight answer on.

What IS the deal with this stuff? I read on the forum somewhere that one of the moderators/admins said he didn't think vitamin e from wheat would be a problem (although don't quote me on this) - something to do with the process? I read in many places I should be worried. Cosmetic companies don't seem to know where it comes from half the time or whether it's been CC'd. I also find it's in a LOT of stuff.... cause vitamin e is awesome. I saw that the amount per gram of vitamin e in wheat is way more than other sources, thus probably easier to get?

What are you all doing about this? I've discarded hundreds of dollars in kitchen and bathroom stuff with wheat and cross-contamination. Several of the things not yet discarded have nothing else but tocopherol/tocopheryl acetate in them. Trying to save my last $10 so I can buy a loaf of gluten-free bread. ;)

I hope this article helps you as I had the same questions a while back. Vitamin E :)

If you see DL-alpha tocopherol or DL-tocopherol this is synthetic vitamin E, derived from petrochemicals, and will not cause any gluten reactions as a result.

D-tocopherol/D-tocopherol acetate are natural forms of vitamin E. Even though the concentration of vitamin E in wheat germ is higher, I believe most vitamin E is soy derived as it is much cheaper. That being said, unless you talk to the manufacturer directly there is no way of knowing if the natural vitamin E is obtained from wheat or not. Even if it is derived from wheat, it may still be ok depending on the way it was processed. For example, cold-press extraction of oils will not remove all protein and/or gluten, so you may end up getting a nasty reaction.
