So, what is ascorbylpalmitat?

Ascorbyl palmitate is a fat-soluble form of vitamin C that is commonly used as an antioxidant in the food industry. It is a white, odorless, and tasteless powder that is highly stable and can be added to various food products, including baked goods, meats, and dairy products. Ascorbyl palmitate is known for its ability to extend the shelf life of foods by preventing the oxidation of fats and oils, which can lead to rancidity and off-flavors. It also has potential health benefits, including boosting the immune system and promoting collagen production.
