The kinetics of the degradation of ascorbic acid (A A) in solution during heating at 30, 50, 70 and 90°C for 180 min a nd during 7 weeks of storage at 4°C and 20°C were investigated. The conc entration of AA in solution was determined by the fluorimetric method before heating and storing the samples under different conditions. The retention of AA after heating at 30, 50, 70, and 90°C and storage at 4°C and 20°C was 87.6, 84.7, 73.8 and 43.6% (for heated samples) and 74.3 and 77 .7% (for stored…

THE EFFECT OF STORAGE ON VITAMIN C STABILITY OF LOCALLY GROWN FRUITS IN BRUNEI DARUSSALAM
Objective: Since humans are incapable of producing Vitamin C, we obtain our daily requirement of Vitamin C from dietary sources such as fruits. It is a common household practice to refrigerate fruits

Kinetics for Isobaric−Isothermal Degradation of l-Ascorbic Acid
A study of the thermal degradation of l-ascorbic acid in different buffer systems (pH 4, 7, and 8) and in real products (juice from squeezed oranges and tomatoes) revealed that l-ascorbic acid is
Kinetics of ascorbic acid degradation in un-pasteurized Iranian lemon juice during regular storage conditions.
TLDR
The aim of this research was to determine shelf life stability of un-pasteurized lemon juice filled in clear or dark green glass bottles and the deteriorative reaction of ascorbic acid in the juice at all conditions followed a first-order kinetic model.
A model study on rate of degradation of L-ascorbic acid during processing using home-produced juice concentrates.
TLDR
The rate of degradation of L-ascorbic acid in solution has been investigated under varying conditions, such as temperature, level of dissolved oxygen, pH, amino acids, sugars and processing conditions, and a definite role of amino acids has not been identified.
Process Optimisation and Minimal Processing of Foods
The pectinesterase (PE) enzyme is responsible for the citrus juices clarification. Usually, to prevent this undesirable effect, 90 to 100 % of the PE is thermally inactivated by a pasteurisation
A study on degradation kinetics of ascorbic acid in amla (Phyllanthus emblica L.) during cooking
TLDR
The results obtained indicate the ascorbic acid degradation is of a similar order of magnitude in all the methods of cooking.
The effect of high hydrostatic pressure on anthocyanins and ascorbic acid in blackcurrants (Ribes nigrum)
The stability of two anthocyanins and ascorbic acid present in fruit juices made from blackcurrants that were subjected to high-pressure processing (HHP) was studied. HHP is a non-thermal food
