Ingredient Type: Antioxidant
Additive Number: 304

Ascorbyl palmitate is a fat-soluble form of vitamin C that is commonly used as an antioxidant and preservative in the food and supplement industries. It is a combination of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and palmitic acid, a type of saturated fatty acid.

As an antioxidant, ascorbyl palmitate is believed to help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can cause oxidative stress and contribute to the development of chronic diseases, such as cancer and heart disease. It is also used as a preservative in foods and supplements to help prevent spoilage and extend shelf life.

Ascorbyl palmitate is generally considered safe for consumption and is well-tolerated by most individuals. However, some people may experience digestive discomfort, such as bloating or gas, when consuming large amounts of fat-soluble vitamins. It is important to follow the recommended dosage guidelines and to avoid consuming excessive amounts of ascorbyl palmitate.
