The manufacturing procedure for ascorbic acid (natural source vitamin C) involves a 15 step process.
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.We use only 100% pure pharmaceutical grade ascorbic acid (USP-FCC) which contains no corn residue, plant antigens, or protein impurities. Persons allergic to corn or yeast, or those who have difficulty with regular vitamin C, can use this product. The vitamin C in this product undergoes 900 analytical tests and quality checks to insure you the highest purity and consistent raw material obtainable. The minerals in this formula are blended with ascorbic acid, forming mineral ascorbates in a solution. All the minerals are mined from the earth.
