Vitamin C also known as ascorbic acid is a white to light yellow solid, an essential dietary component for humans and animals. It is a carbohydrate-like compound soluble in water and is essential for the human body as it helps synthesise collagen, acts as an antioxidant and also helps stimulate the immune system. It naturally occurs in citrus fruits and vegetables, and its deficiency can cause scurvy.

Production Processes

Vitamin C is commercially produced via glucose. Wheat and corn are used as raw starch materials, converted to glucose first. The thus-formed glucose is then used to make sorbitol which is fermented to form sorbose and again fermented to give keto gluconic acid, which finally gets converted to ascorbic acid.


The displayed pricing data is derived through weighted average purchase price, including contract and spot transactions at the specified locations unless otherwise stated. The information provided comes from the compilation and processing of commercial data officially reported for each nation (i.e. government agencies, external trade bodies, and industry publications).
