Some items on the ingredients list of your favourite foods may sound like a chemical additive but are not. It’s easy to be fooled; but these ingredients have been added to boost the nutritional content of the product:
alpha-tocopherol: a type of vitamin E. The version d-alpha-tocopherol (you may see it listed as d-alpha-tocopherol acetate) is the natural most biologically active form of vitamin E. The synthetic version dl-alpha-tocopherol, is only half as effective as the natural form.
asorbic acid: vitamin C.
biotin: a member of the B family of vitamins.
calcium lactate: produced when lactic acid reacts with calcium carbonate. This is a highly absorbable form of calcium.

cysnocobalamin: vitamin B12.
d-Calcium pantothenate: synthetically prepared from pantothenic acid and sold as a vitamin B5 supplement.
ferrous fumarate: also known as iron (II) fumarate.
ferric orthophosphate: another form of iron. It is added to food because it is colourless and odourless.
