L-Ascorbic Acid

A&A Pharmachem offers quality bulk L-Ascorbic Acid powder !

Ascorbic acid also known as L-Ascorbic Acid is vitamin C which is naturally found in various foods. It is also chemically manufactured and used or sold as a dietary supplement. Ascorbic acid in supplements is often derived from corn starch, corn sugar, or rice starch, and is chemically dependent upon volatile acids.

L-Ascorbic Acid is an affordable bioavailable form of Vitamin C and it dissolves quickly in water. It is commonly used and added to commercially produced foods and beverages. The product is a white or yellowish white fine granular powder with a sour taste. However, it is easily destroyed by oxidation especially close to heat or alkalinity. The molecules of L-Ascorbic Acid are fragile and can degrade in foods during preparation, cooking and even in storage.

The most common usage of L-Ascorbic Acid is the following:

  1. Vitamin C dietary supplement. Commercial vitamin C is often a combination of ascorbic acid, Sodium Ascorbate and/or other ascorbates such as Calcium Ascorbate and Ascorbyl Palmitate. It is hard to obtain from natural sources and supplementation has become necessary due to eating habits and lifestyles.
  2. Food additive or Flour treatment agent: L-ascorbic acid is also used as a food additive which is added to flour or dough to improve baking quality and colour.
  3. Food antioxidant: L-ascorbic acid has preservative properties and helps to protect against food deterioration. Ascorbic acid, together with sodium, potassium, and calcium salts, are typically used as antioxidant food additives.
  4. Cosmetic ingredient for skin care products: L-Ascorbic acid is added to skin care products to improve skin health and reduce wrinkles, lines and sun spots.

The two most common benefits of Vitamin C or L- Ascorbic Acid supplementation are:

Boosting the immune system.
• Increasing and stimulating the collagen production and improving skin health

The recommended daily value (DV) by FDA for vitamin C is 90 mg. However, the adult dosage (Oral, IM, IV, subcutaneously) can range from 50 to 200 mg/day. The pediatric dosage can range from 35 to 100 mg/day.
