|Molecular Weight: ||176.13|
|CAS No.: ||89-65-6|
Erythorbic Acid occurs as white or slightly yellow crystals or powder. It gradually darkens when exposed to light. In the dry state, it is reasonably stable in air, but in solution, it rapidly deteriorates in the presence of air. It melts between164°C and 171°C with decomposition. One gram is soluble in about 2.5 mL of water and in about 20 mL of alcohol. It is slightly soluble in glycerin.
Erythorbic acid is an important antioxidant in the food industry, which can maintain the color, natural flavor and extend the shelf life of food. In the food industry, it is mainly used in meat products, beverages, fruits, vegetables, canned foods, jams, beer, soda, fruit tea, juice, wine, etc.
