Barrie Tan, PhD

Dr. Barrie Tan earned his doctorate in chemistry (University of Otago, New Zealand; 1979), and became a professor of chemistry and food science/nutrition (University of Massachusetts, Amherst; 1982-1992).His research expertise includes lipid-soluble nutrients (carotenoids, E vitamers, CoQ10, and omega-3s). He was the first to introduce tocotrienol's benefits to the nutrition industry, and developed the first-ever tocopherol-free tocotrienol product derived from annatto. Today, his research focuses on lipid-soluble nutrients that impact chronic conditions. Dr. Tan is the senior editor of Tocotrienols: Vitamin E Beyond Tocopherols (2013), and continues to collaborate with numerous universities worldwide to further tocotrienol research.
