So, what is acido-ascorbico?

Acido-ascorbico, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin found naturally in various fruits and vegetables. It is commonly used as a food ingredient due to its antioxidant properties, which help prevent the oxidation of food and extend its shelf life. Acido-ascorbico is also known for its role in the human body, where it is essential for collagen production, iron absorption, and immune function. This versatile ingredient can be found in a wide range of food products, including baked goods, beverages, and snacks, and is often used as a natural preservative and color stabilizer.
