E300 = Vitamin C

E300 is an additive approved by the EU (European Union) and used as a natural antioxidant in food and drink products.

The common name for E300 is ascorbic acid, which is also known as Vitamin C.

Although a natural antioxidant occurring in most fruits and vegetables, E300 can also be produced synthetically from the fermentation and oxidation of glucose. It is a sugar acid that is most commonly used as a bread enhancer by acting as a flour-treating agent.

Vitamin C should be included in the diet every day because only a little is stored in the body.

Lack of E300 may lead to scurvy because vitamin C is important for the healthy development of bones, teeth and blood vessels. E300 may also act to reduce wrinkles by aiding to production of collagen in the skin.

Examples of food and drink products that may include E300:

  • tomatoes
  • strawberries
  • citrus fruits
  • cabbage
