PurC® Organic Vitamin C

Organic Vitamin C Extract from Amla Gooseberry

Amla fruit (Phyllanthus Emblica) is also known as Indian gooseberry or emblic. 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. PurC® is an organic powdered extract standardized to vitamin C content sourced only using organic Indian-origin amla fruit. 

About PurC® Organic Vitamin C Extract

The key to PurC® is its source: Amla (or Gooseberry). While other citrus fruits and vegetables contain vitamin C, Amla contains up to 20 times more vitamin C. While vitamin C is naturally found in citrus fruits, green vegetables, and tomatoes, it might be a shock to learn that most vitamin C used for supplements and beverages is actually synthetically derived. Artificial vitamin C has become the industry norm mostly because of the known challenges in extracting it from natural sources. While citrus fruits contain high levels of this ingredient in their raw form, the extractable amounts to be applied as a natural ingredient are typically 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 beverage industry the first of its kind in PurC® organic vitamin C extract.
