Vitamin C powder 250g vs Mixed Ascorbates 250g
These products are quite similar as they are both Vitamin C products from the same company. The main differences are that : -
1) Mixed Ascorbates contains a small amount of fructose (fruit sugar) as a sweetener, which makes it taste nicer, but may be unsuitable for those who need to strictly avoid sugar
2) Mixed Ascorbates come from ascorbates of magnesium, calcium, zinc, potassium and manganese rather than just from magnesium ascorbate.
3) Mixed Ascorbates contains flavonoids that help maintain capillary and connective tissue integrity
4) One scoop of Mixed Ascorbates = 1000mg vitamin C. One scoop of Vitamin C Powder = 803g. The reason why there is slightly more Vitamin C in the mixed ascorbates per scoop than the Vitamin C Powder is because the molecule size is smaller with the Mixed Ascorbates
