Tocotrienol (T3) has a wide variety of health benefits. For example, T3 acts as an effective anti-angiogenic compound useful for preventing angiogenicrelated disorders (i.e., diabetic retinopathy, rheumatoid arthritis, and cancers). Because the intake of T3 from dietary foods is low (few mg/day), it is highly encouraged to develop T3-fortified food for therapeutic purposes. It was found that commercial eggs contain a little amount of T3 (around 0.11 mg/egg), and that by adding extra T3 source (rice bran scum oil) into laying hen feeds, T3 is absorbed and accumulated in hen eggs. The maximum level of T3 was 0.56-0.62 mg/egg after 7 days of the experimental period. Eggs enriched with T3 would be produced and recommended as one of choices for T3 for its health benefits.
