Calcium ascorbate is a compound with formula CaC12H14O12. It is the calcium salt of ascorbic acid.
Sorbitol, also known as glucitol, is a sugar alcohol that the human body metabolises slowly. It is obtained by reduction of glucose changing the aldehyde group to an additional hydroxyl group.
magnesium aluminum oxide, MgAl2O4, a mineral crystallizing in the isometric system, usually as octahedrons. It occurs as an accessory mineral in basic igneous rocks, in aluminum-rich metamorphic rocks, and in contact-metamorphosed limestones.
Ascorbate peroxidases (or APX1) are enzymes that detoxify peroxides such as hydrogen peroxide using ascorbate as a substrate. The reaction they catalyse is the transfer of electrons from ascorbate to a peroxide, producing dehydroascorbate and water as products.
Potassium ascorbate is a compound with formula KC6H7O6. It is the potassium salt of ascorbic acid.
Sodium ascorbate is a compound with formula C6H7NaO6. It is the sodium salt of ascorbic acid.
Ascorbic acid is a sugar acid with antioxidant properties. Its appearance is white to light-yellow crystals or powder, and it is water-soluble. One form of ascorbic acid is commonly known as vitamin C.
The choice of the mineral carbonates can be calcium carbonate, potassium carbonate, sodium bicarbonate, magnesium carbonate, or many other mineral forms. Ascorbates are highly reactive antioxidants used as food preservatives.
