Product Information

ASCORBIC ACID, 25KG BOXED SACK - White to off white fine powder, odourless or almost odourless, soluble in water.

Ascorbic acid is a chemical compound (C6H8O6) that is commonly found in nature and can be used as an antioxidant food additive. It acts as a vitamer of Vitamin C, which means it is a compound that provides the same vitamin activity as Vitamin C.

Often used in the food industry since it can slows down the oxidation - thereby preserving colour and freshness. The low pH of ascorbic acid can help prevent microbial growth, which helps prevent spoilage and preserving freshness. For these reasons, ascorbic acid is a popular natural ingredient preservative.

Ascorbic acid is often used in bread making, canning fruits and charcuterie.

A common usage guide:
  • Slows down oxidation of fats in charcuterie, and baking - add 0.1 to 0.3% by weight
  • Preserves colour and flavour of fruit juice - add 0.1 to 0.3% by weight, most effective used in conjunction with citric acid
  • Prevents discolouration of apples in water - 0.5 to 1% by weight
  • Used as a flour improver in bread-making - 0.04 to 0.1% by weight
