Ascorbic acid which is hydrophobicized granularly with a thin layer of a high-melting edible fat.
Occurs naturally in fruits and vegetables. Especially in acerola berries, citrus fruits, parsley, peppers, kiwis, rose hips, broccoli, cress, potatoes, blackcurrants, sauerkraut, brussels sprouts and peas.
Ascorbic acid was first isolated in 1927.
1. The hard grease coating greatly delays the dissolution of ascorbic acid in the aqueous medium. Accordingly at the same time the acid effect is suppressed. Our ascorbic acid is coated with a 10-20 or 30 percent fat layer to give you technological advantages in various processes and always a maximum of flexibility.
2. A controlled release of the acid can be achieved by the action of shear forces (e.g. in the cutter). Ascorbic acid, ascorbate ascorbic acid is a pure vitamin C. Together with its sodium salt, sodium ascorbate, it is the most important reddening agent. Both reduce the residual nitrite content, prevent the formation of nitrosamine and protect the pink cured color from negative influences of light and oxygen.
3. Ascorbic acid also protects very fatty products against premature oxidation of fats and thus counteracts fat spoilage (rancidity).
4. Prevents in dissolved form the oxidative brown coloration of fruit e.g. apples, pears, bananas, ...
PROTECTION AGAINST "FREE RADICALS“
For the body:
These free radicals are formed by the body itself during various metabolic processes, and are also produced by harmful external influences such as cigarette smoke, environmental toxins or UV radiation from the sun. If there are too many free radicals in our body, "oxidative stress" occurs. This is supposed to cause diseases such as arteriosclerosis, cardiovascular diseases, arthritis and cancer diseases and also make the skin age faster. Antioxidants unfold protective and health-promoting effects when they are taken in as part of a diet rich in vegetables and fruit.
For the skin:
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) helps in two ways: Firstly, vitamin C protects the collagen framework from free radicals that damage it. Secondly, it supports the body in the production of new collagen. Vitamin C thus ensures a healthy and stable collagen framework. It can withstand greater tension and does not break down so quickly. Wrinkle formation is slowed down and your facial skin remains wrinkle-free for longer.
Vitamin C for acne and pimples:
The antioxidant effect of vitamin C helps with acne and pimples. Vitamin C relieves small inflammations in the skin caused by acne. The anti-inflammatory effect smoothes the skin. The condition of our skin can be visibly improved. The complexion appears more even and healthier. The progression of acne is also caused by oxidation processes in which vitamin C is effective. Therefore, vitamin C should not be missing in the treatment of acne and problem skin.
4. Further properties/facts
We must regularly supply the body with a sufficient amount, as it cannot be stored in the organism. Already in the 18th century, the British navy supplemented the food supply at sea with lemon juice because it was discovered that citrus fruits could prevent the outbreak of scurvy. Ascorbic acid promotes the vital absorption of iron in the intestines and plays an important role in the formation of teeth, gums, connective tissue and bones. It is also involved in various metabolic processes in the body.
