Ascorbic acid neutralizes oxygen when it comes into contact with it.

Vitamin C, a potent, naturally occurring antioxidant is an important constituent of skin.

The determination of ascorbic acid content is based on the oxidation of ascorbic acid to dehydroascorbic acid: CVitamin C is found in fruit drinks such as orange juice and also other sources like vegetables, liver and kidney meat.

Vitamin C in food can be destroyed by cooking, leaching out from fruits and vegetable during washing, and being oxidized when expose to the air.
