Carlsons Fish oil

Elaine writes:
On SCD, even though soy or corn is not permitted because of its carbohydrate content, various fatty substances extracted are OK. For example, lecithin is a phosphoglyceride and is just fine. Corn oil, altho not my favorite oil, is OK. Therefore, tocopherols (Vitamin E) extracted from soy are OK. However, my training in nutritional biochemistry (altho 20 years old) taught me that mixed tocopherols, altho cheap to produce, are not active forms for the human being. Only alpha D-tocopherol is active.
