World Organic - Ascorbyl Palmitate 500 mg. - 100 Tablets
World Organic's Ascorbyl Palmitate 500 mg is a fat (lipid) soluble Vitamin C, which means it is more stable than water soluble Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) supplements. Because of its solubility in fats, Ascorbyl Palmitate may be more effective as an antioxidant in preventing lipid peroxidation than water soluble Vitamin C.
About Ascorbyl Palmitate
Ascorbyl palmitate is an ester formed from ascorbic acid and palmitic acid creating a fat-soluble form of vitamin C. In addition to its use as a source of vitamin C, it is also used as an antioxidant food additive (E number E304). It is approved for use as a food additive in the EU, USA and Australia and New Zealand. Ascorbyl palmitate taken orally is less effective, due to the substance's 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".

As these unique formulations grew in sales, he started World Organic Corporation in 1969 with his brother Vincent to share them with stores nationwide and continue with private label in his own stores. And World Organic, part of the Licata Enterprise family of companies, is proud to announce its 51st year in business.
