Sodium ascorbate: preservative, antioxidant and food supplement: vitamin C


Sodium ascorbate or vitamin C or E-301 is a widely used excipient that serves as a preservative for the food industry. Not only is it a vitamin, it is also an antioxidant. Like ascorbic acid (E-300), it helps prevent brown discoloration. You apply the excipient to fresh fruit, fruit juices and meat. The powder can easily be sprinkled over food and mixed with it or dissolved in liquids. Sodium ascorbate can be ordered online at Natural Spices in various pack sizes. Sodium ascorbate as a supplement cannot be overdosed. Too much of this product leaves the body through the intestines.



What is the difference between sodium ascorbate and ascorbic acid?


Food labels state vitamin C as well as E-300 (ascorbic acid) and E-301 (sodium ascorbic acid). But what is the difference between them? Actually, it is very simple. The latter is a combination of ascorbic acid and sodium. Sodium is a substance that is added to foods in many different forms. You could also say that sodium ascorbate is a food acid based on ascorbic acid. In case of stomach complaints, sodium ascorbate is recommended instead of ascorbic acid.



Antioxidant and food supplement: vitamin C


Sodium ascorbate is an antioxidant. This means that it helps in the process of neutralising free radicals. Free radicals are unbalanced molecules that strip healthy cells of their oxygen. In short, it helps protect your body from harmful substances and helps repair damaged cells. Vitamin C is important for human health and immune system and can be used for other purposes in this powder form. Vitamin C has a great positive effect on your connective tissue, blood vessels, skin, bones, tendons, muscles, brain, hormones etc.


Sodium ascorbate can be ordered online in various quantities at Natural Spices. For example, you can buy a package of 300, 800 grams, 2 kilos or even 25 kilos. The powder is free of colour, odour and flavour and is also suitable for vegans. You can use it both as a vitamin supplement and as a preservative. Be aware that there are strict limits to the use of this tool. You can find them on the European Commission's website: Food Additives Database. The recommended daily allowance as a supplement at a weight of 70 KG is between 2000 - 4000 mg (one teaspoon).
