Ascorbic Acid - Crystalline Powder
100% Pure Natural Source Vitamin C
Pharmaceutical Grade pH 2.1
A Dietary Supplement
Nutribiotic Ascorbic Acid has the highest solubility of all vitamin C powders which makes it the easiest to mix into water or any beverage. The manufacturing procedure for NutriBiotic all-natural Source Ascorbic Acid involves 15 steps:
Steps 1 thru 9 (Starch Hydrolysis): Vegetable starch is broken down into simple sugar (D-Glucose) by the action of heat and enzymes.
Step 10 (Hydrogenation): D-Glucose is converted into D-Sorbitol.
Step 11 (Fermentation): D Sorbitol is converted into L-Sorbose.
Step 12 (Acetonation): L-Sorbose is combined with an acid at low temperatures.
Step 13 (Oxidation): The product is then oxidized with a catalyst, acidified, washed and dried forming L-Gluconic Acid.
Step 14 (Hydrolysis): L-Gluconic Acid is treated with hydrochloric acid forming crude ascorbic acid.
Step 15 (Recrystallization): The crude ascorbic acid is filtered, purified and milled 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.

This was Dr. Pauling's preferred form of Vitamin C. Its low (acidic) pH can actually be a boon to the digestion of middle agers and those beyond, whose production of digestive acid commonly wanes. Taken with meals (as it should be), ascorbic acid can actually improve the uptake and utilization of other crucial vitamins and minerals, like iron. The fine crystalline, easy-to-mix, highest solubility Type 'S' powder is ultra-pure, appropriate for supplemental as well as food preserving applications. Vitamin C in its simplest and most economical form.
