Ascorbic acid E-300 - Vitamin C powder


Ascorbic acid is a food acid used to extend the shelf life of a product. It has multiple uses, but is most often used to ensure the quality of bread. Ascorbic acid is the chemical name for vitamin C. At Natural Spices you can buy ascorbic acid E-300 online. It is a water-soluble variant of vitamin C. The addition of the E number ensures that the product itself has a longer shelf life. You can order the excipient online in pack sizes of 260 grams, 800 grams, 2.5 kilos, 10 kilos or 25 kilos.


Preservative and antioxidant and food supplement


Ascorbic acid acts as a preservative and prevents the browning of fruit juices and fruit, among other things. Apart from that it is also an important antioxidant. This means that it helps neutralise harmful substances in your body. Vitamin C also promotes digestion and supports your immune system. It offers natural protection against various diseases. You can therefore call ascorbic acid a healthy excipient. It does not contain any flavourings, odours or colourings. The additive can be used by vegetarians and vegans. As a supplement you should take in a daily quantity of between 2000 - 4000 mg (one teaspoon). Mix with yoghurt or add to dinner.


The difference between vitamin C and citric acid


Vitamin C, and therefore ascorbic acid, is sometimes confused with citric acid. Not so strange, because both have a connection with citrus fruit. In terms of composition, the two also resemble each other. The difference, however, is that citric acid is produced synthetically and vitamin C is not. Citric acid is used to improve the taste of certain products.Think, for example, of fruit-flavoured sweets. Ascorbic acid or vitamin C is a preservative, whereas citric acid is a flavour additive. Ascorbic acid is the functional compound of what we know and use as vitamin C. Citric acid is used in, for example, vitamin C tablets, but this is only for flavour and has little nutritional value itself. A pill from the drugstore or supermarket contains less than 100 mg.

Mix it with the yoghurt at breakfast or add it to dinner.
