NutriBiotic Calcium Ascorbate is manufactured by dissolving pharmaceutical grade ascorbic acid in a solution with calcium carbonate (mined from the earth). NutriBiotic Calcium Ascorbate is a fully reacted compound and not a dry mix of calcium carbonate and ascorbic acid.
The manufacturing procedure for NutriBiotic Pharmaceutical Grade Ascorbic Acid involves 15 steps. Vegetable starch is broken down into simple sugar (D-Glucose) by the action of heat and enzymes. The D-Glucose is converted into D-Sorbitol through hydrogenation. The D-Sorbitol is then converted into L-Sorbose through fermentation. L-Sorbose is combined with acid at low temperatures. This product is then oxidized with a catalyst, acidified, washed and dried forming L-Gluconic Acid. The L-Gluconic Acid is treated with hydrochloric acid forming crude ascorbic acid. The last involves filtering, purifying and milling the crude ascorbic acid into a fine crystalline powder.Contains no fillers, excipients, lubricants, binders, starch, wheat, soy, milk, egg, yeast, rose hips, animal products, colorings, flavorings or preservatives.

At pH 7.3, this is our most alkaline (buffered) form of vitamin C. Because the 10% calcium content of this product is fully reacted with and bound to the vitamin C component, there is no hint of tartness. It provides significant levels of calcium with vitamin C in a gentle, alkaline form. Helpful for those bothered by more acidic forms or people desiring a calcium boost from their vitamin C.
