So, what is ascorbato de sódio?

Ascorbato de sódio, also known as sodium ascorbate, is a synthetic form of Vitamin C that is commonly used as an antioxidant and preservative in the food industry. This white, odorless powder is highly water-soluble and can be easily added to foods and beverages to increase their shelf life and prevent spoilage. In addition to its antioxidant properties, sodium ascorbate also plays an important role in collagen synthesis, immune system function, and wound healing. It is commonly used in meat products, baked goods, and dietary supplements, and is generally considered safe for consumption in moderate amounts.
