Vitamin C(Ascorbyl palmitate)

Introduction

Ascorbyl palmitate is also known as vitamin C palmitate, L-ascorbyl-6-palmitate and 3-oxo-L-gulofuranolactone 6-palmitate. Ascorbyl Palmitate is an ascorbate bonded to palmitic acid to form a Vitamin C ester, used as an anti-staling compound which retard the staling of food products, and soften the crumb. Other anti-staling compounds are

sucrose stearate, polyoxyethylene monostearate, glyceryl monostearate, stearoyl tartrate (polyoxyethylene and monoglyceride derivatives of fatty acids). Ascorbyl palmitate is a synthetic ester comprised of the 16-carbon chain saturated fatty acid palmitic acid and L-ascorbic acid. The ester linkage is at the 6 carbon of ascorbic acid.

Ascorbyl palmitate taken orally is less effective, due to the substance breaking down again into ascorbic acid (not necessarily Vitamin C) and palmitic acid (a saturated fatty acid) before being digested. Ascorbyl palmitate is also marketed as "vitamin C ester".

Ascorbyl palmitate is very slightly soluble in water and in vegetable oils. Ascorbic acid comprises 42.5% of the weight of ascorbyl palmitate.

Advantage

Ascorbic acid is the simplest most readily available form of Vitamin C. However, since ascorbic acid is water soluble, the body will always have problems absorbing it. While the absorption of water soluble vitamin C is quite quick, its penetration in cells is limited. Unlike Vitamin E, a fat soluble vitamin, vitamin C is not stored in the body. This makes ascorbyl palmitate a very attractive form of Vitamin C supplementation.
