PurC® Organic Vitamin C Extracts

Boost your ‘organic vitamin C’

Vitamin C is a naturally occurring compound in many citrus fruits, green vegetables, and tomatoes. Yet, it might be a shock to learn that most vitamin C used for supplements and beverages is synthetically derived. Artificial vitamin C has become the industry norm, mostly because of the known challenges in extracting it from natural sources. For many of these ingredients, the extractable amounts of vitamin C in their raw form are neither potent enough, stable enough, nor soluble enough to be used as a commercially viable option in products. Applied Food Sciences addresses this by providing the industry with the incredible potency of PurC organic vitamin C extract. Available in two great sources.

Key Benefits
  • 25% Vitamin C
  • Fully water-soluble
  • Excellent flavor
  • USDA Certified Organic
  • Non-GMO Project Verified
  • Organic pH modifier / preservative

Two great sources

Acerola cherry (Malpighia Emarginata) is a compelling fruit with exciting promise. This small fruit packs a tart, sweet flavor that is overloaded with naturally occurring vitamin C. Acerola is typically seen in juices and jams and acts as a natural preservative. 

Amla fruit (Phyllanthus Emblica) is also known as Indian gooseberry. Amla is a spherical fruit that is light greenish-yellow with beautiful vertical furrows running through it. The fruit is harvested by hand and, in its raw form, tastes sour while being quite fibrous.

Sensory Profile

PurC is slightly sweet with a mildly tart finish, and it is the perfect complement for a wide variety of product applications.
