Slightly Yellow Raw Material Vitamin C Powder for Immune Function
The appearance of Vitamin C is white crystal with faintly acid. It is the most important soluble vitamin in the body of human beings. Most of the mammals can compound vitamin C in their body. But human beings can not do that and must beobtained from diet or supplementation. In the body of human being, Vitamin C has many functions like anti-oxidation, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, anti-microbico, production of collagen. All these functions are the basic conditions for keeping healthy.

|Basic properties||Vitamin C is also called Ascorbic Acid. It is easily dissolved in water, slightly dissolved in ethanol and not soluble in some organic solvent like chloroform, benzene, diethyl ether and grease. It has acidity and reducibility.|
Vitamin C is a white crystal or crystalline powder. Its melting point is 190℃～192℃, no odour and sour taste. It is easily dissoved in water, slightly dissovled in ethanol and not dissovled in chloroform and diethyl ether. Vitamin C is a kind of soluble vitamin and has very strong reducibility. It is easy to break down when heat or in the solution. And it is easier to be oxidized in alkaline conditions. Vitamin C in food is absorbed by the upside of small intestine. Once absorbed, it will spread in to the soluble stuctures of the body.

As a kind of Vitamin C, ascorbic acid plays a great role in preventing scurvy caused by long voyage travel. For example, in order to prevent scurvy, oranges with rich of vitamin C was provided for sailor and passengers. Although most animals can compound ascorbic acid naturally, but human beings do no have this ability and have to get this nutrition by foods. Cauliflower, spinach and cranberry also have rich ascorbic acid except the fruits like oranges. After getting that ascorbic acid can prevent scurvy, the manufacturers of natural foods start sales of Vitamin C capsules. Besides, vitamin C also is added into many fruit juice drinks.
Recommendation On Use
Vitamin C can be used in wheat flour and its maximum usage is 0.2g/kg.
It also can be used in Concentrated fruit and vegetable juice and the usage should be according the requiremens of the production.
Vitamin C is used in fruit juice and carbonate beverages for prevent from going oxidative deterioration. Theoretically every 3.3mg Vitamin C can react with 1ml air. If the average assay of the air in the bottom clearance of the container is 5ml, 15-16g Vitamin C will make the oxygen assay in air be lower than critical level. And then prevent the products from discoloring and off-odor. Citric Acid can be used as synergist when Vitamin C was used as antioxidant.
