Vitamin C in fruit juice drinks is one of the important nutrients required by the human body. However, due to its instability, it is easily affected by the storage environment such as temperature, light, and the pH of the internal system of the juice, which will cause oxidation reactions. A large number of free radicals cause the oxidative decomposition of vitamin C.
Effect of Erythritol on Vitamin C in Lemon Juice Drink
Erythritol is a new type of natural sweetener that has been popularized in recent years. Because of its pure sweetness and no bad bitter aftertaste, it also has low calories, high tolerance, and metabolism without causing blood sugar fluctuations. Therefore, it is widely used in the food industry such as beverages and candy.
At the same time, the research team found that erythritol can also act as an antioxidant, which can effectively scavenge free radicals and inhibit their formation. Adding erythritol to lemon juice beverages can protect vitamin C to a certain extent.
