Roles Classification
Chemical Role(s): food antioxidant
An antioxidant that used as a food additives to help guard against food deterioration.
antioxidant
A substance that opposes oxidation or inhibits reactions brought about by dioxygen or peroxides.
(via vitamin E )
(via tocol )
Biological Role(s): plant metabolite
Any eukaryotic metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in plants, the kingdom that include flowering plants, conifers and other gymnosperms.
food component
Any substance that is distributed in foodstuffs. It includes materials derived from plants or animals, such as vitamins or minerals, as well as environmental contaminants.
algal metabolite
Any eukaryotic metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in algae including unicellular organisms like chlorella and diatoms to multicellular organisms like giant kelps and brown algae.
food antioxidant
An antioxidant that used as a food additives to help guard against food deterioration.
fat-soluble vitamin
Vitamins like A, D, E and K that dissolve in fats and are stored in body tissues. Unlike the water-soluble vitamins, these are stored in the body for long periods of time and generally pose a greater risk for toxicity when consumed in excess.
(via vitamin E )
Application(s): food antioxidant
An antioxidant that used as a food additives to help guard against food deterioration.
