Sodium Ascorbate

What is Sodium Ascorbate?

Sodium ascorbate is a form of vitamin C, which is a water-soluble vitamin. It is a less acidic alternative to ascorbic acid.

Sodium ascorbate serves as an acidulant in certain beverages, such as fruit juices and carbonated drinks, to adjust pH levels and provide tartness.

In meat processing, sodium ascorbate is used as a curing agent to prevent the growth of bacteria.
