beta-tocopherol, β-tocopherol, is one of four tocopherols, and one of eight members of the group that collectively are called Vitamin E.

beta-tocopherol is an antioxidant.

Vitamin E can be produced commercially, synthetic.

It means that it is better to eat foods containing tocopherol naturally than those foods where they have been added.
