BP & USP grade is considered to be the gold bar standard and is the highest grade of ascorbic acid available.

Always make sure ascorbic acid is made to BP & USP requirements. Standard food grade ascorbic acid is still widely available in the UK.

Vitamin C – ascorbic acid was first discovered in 1932 and was the subject of the first controlled nutritional experiment in recorded history. Vitamin C is known to be involved in at least 300 biochemical pathways in the body.

Vitamin C powder is water soluble and as we are unable to manufacture vitamin C within the body, a daily intake is necessary. Vitamin C is involved in cell and tissue repair is involved in the conversion of proline to hydroxyproline and is therefore essential in collagen maintenance in skin, bones, teeth.  In short ascorbic acid powder has numerous uses and is one of the most widely used vitamins in the world.
