Sodium ascorbate (vitamin C) is a white dust, a little yellow chrytalyne and odorless and with a bit salty flavor. It is easily soluble in water (1 gram is soluble on 3 mL of water) and is dissolved to give a clear solution without color and a little yellow.
Vitamin C, a water soluble vitamin, is essential for the synthesis of collagen and intracellular material. Vitamin C deficiency develops when dietary intake is inadequate. It is scarce in adults, but it can occur in children, alcoholics or elderly people.
The deficiency leads to the development of a well-defined syndrome known as scurvy. It is characterized by capillary fragility, bleeding (especially from blood vessels and gums), normocytic or macrocytic anemia, cartilage and bone injuries, and delay in healing wounds. The accumulation of Vitamin C in health is about 1.5 to 3g. Symptoms of deficiency develop when the accumulation in the body is less than 0.5g.
