Sodium ascorbate dc 99%

Product code: P19141

Sodium Ascorbate is the sodium salt of ascorbic acid.  It can be used both as a nutrient (vitamin C) and as an additive (antioxidant).


We have two types of sodium ascorbate available: ‘P1914’ is the regular sodium ascorbate, ‘P19141’ is the DC (Directly Compressible) grade. The DC grade material is more granular and is more suitable for tablet/capsule applications. The DC grade material contains 1% Corn Starch to help with the compressibility and therefore is only 99% sodium ascorbate.


Sodium ascorbate might be beneficial over ascorbic acid because it is buffered by the sodium, making it less acidic. This might be beneficial for those who suffer from gastrointestinal side effects when they take other forms of vitamin C. Please note that doses (more than 1000mg of vitamin C) may cause mild stomach upset in sensitive individuals.
 

Dosage:
Sodium Ascorbate contains 88.9% Vitamin C and 11.1% Sodium by mass.  As this material is only 99% Sodium Ascorbate, the overall material contains ~88% Vitamin C and ~11% Sodium. Therefore, to obtain the following label claims, you would require these quantities of DC grade sodium ascorbate preparation


12mg Vitamin C (15%) RI:*  :  13.6mg of Sodium Ascorbate
24mg Vitamin C (30%) RI:*  :   27.3mg of Sodium Ascorbate 
80mg Vitamin C (100%) RI*  :  90.9mg of Sodium Ascorbate

*RI = Reference Intake
