Acting as an antioxidant, ascorbic acid can improve the colour and palatability of many kinds of food products. By removing oxygen from its surroundings, ascorbic acid in its reduced form becomes the oxidized form, dehydroascorbic acid. This oxidizing action reduces the available oxygen in its immediate environment, making ascorbic acid an effective antioxidant.
Ascorbic acid is used in food and beverages to increase the vitamin C levels which are then consumed by people who don’t get enough in their diets. Vitamin C is vital to a healthy diet as it is needed to maintain healthy skin, cartilage, bones and blood vessels.
