Confused About Vitamin E

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

This is my first post but I've been reading you guys for weeks and found SO much helpful information since going totally gluten-free last month.

I'm confused about Vitamin E - I know this is in a lot of beauty products and is derived from wheat germ. I was using Peanut Oil the other day and noticed in the ingredients that it contains peanut oil, tocopheryl acetate and tocopherol (Vitamen E). Do I need to worry about this or is this just derived from the peanuts?

Welcome!

Tocopherols are very highly processed. The Canadian Celiac Association lists them as gluten-free in food, regardless of the source. Not everyone agrees, so make your own decision. I don't worry about tocopherols.

Thanks - I didn't have a reaction but I was concerned as it is on the taboo list.
