Abstract

Aronia Melanocarpa fruits are high in vitamin C. Vitamin C is an antioxidant necessary for the human body to prevent scurvy, gum disease, bone and blood vessels and boost immunity. The paper also highlighted the determination of vitamin C in the Aronia Melanocarpa fruits, and studies on the stability of vitamin C in different pH environments in the process of oxidation in atmospheric oxygen. Ascorbics acid oxidation reaction proceeds through a chained mechanism. In 1936 Barron et all. [1], conducted the first study of auto-oxidation of ascorbic acid to dehydroascorbic acid. Through this research, we highlight areas where vitamin C pH will be stable.
