Product Description:

Ascorbic Acid is a naturally occurring organic compound with antioxidant properties. It is a white solid, but impure samples can appear yellowish. It dissolves well in water to give mildly acidic solutions. Because it is derived from glucose, many animals are able to produce it, but humans require it as part of their nutrition. 

Other vertebrates which lack the ability to produce ascorbic acid include other primates, guinea pigs, teleost fishes, bats, and some birds, all of which require it as a dietary micronutrient (that is, in vitamin form).

There exists a D-ascorbic acid, which does not occur in nature. It may be synthesized artificially. It has identical antioxidant properties to L-ascorbic acid yet has far less vitamin C activity (although not quite zero).

Ascorbic Acid blocks the formation of the carcinogen ammonium nitrite. Salted, stained and smoked foods contain nitrite (same as bacon and sausage), and nitrite and amine combine in the stomach to form the carcinogen ammonium nitrite.

It is an important vitamin widely found in fresh fruits and vegetables and many organisms. As a highly active substance, it is involved in many metabolic processes. Our factory is one of the most professional Ascorbic Acid China suppliers engaged in wholesale Ascorbic Acid.
