Edible oils contain a range of natural antioxidants. Vitamin E is the most widespread and widely studied, although oils contain mixtures of tocopherols and tocotrienols that vary in their contribution to the stability of oils and also vary in their significance for human nutrition. Some oils contain very characteristic antioxidants including virgin olive oil that contains mixtures of secoiridoids, and sesame oil, which contains mixtures of lignans with antioxidant properties.
It is widely recognised that the matrix of the food or biological system affects the activity of antioxidants, and much work is needed to clarify the interactions of antioxidants with proteins and other components, and the significance of antioxidants for human health. This issue will allow publication of all aspects of the properties of antioxidants in oils, and their significance for oil stability and health.
