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.
