Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) E300 100 g
Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) E300.
Ascorbic acid, commonly known as vitamin C, is a powerful antioxidant famous for its benefits on health and immune system. In cooking, it is used to keep the green vivid colours of vegetables and stops the oxidation of peeled aliments (apple, pear, banana, artichoke, ...). In butchery and cooked meats, it maintains the meat colour. In bakery, ascorbic acid is used as a flour ‘improver’ or dough conditioner. In the presence of oxygen, ascorbic acid becomes an oxidising agent and the improvements to which it contributes include strengthened gluten, greater loaf volume, finer and increased tenderness of the crumb, faster rising.
