So, what is erythorbic acid?

Erythorbic acid is a food ingredient that is widely used as an antioxidant in the food industry. It is a stereoisomer of ascorbic acid, also known as vitamin C. Erythorbic acid is commonly used in processed meats, such as sausages and hot dogs, to prevent color and flavor changes caused by oxidation. It is also used in beverages, canned fruits and vegetables, and baked goods. Erythorbic acid has the same chemical properties as ascorbic acid and is considered safe for consumption by regulatory agencies. Its use in the food industry has helped to extend the shelf life of many products and improve their overall quality.
