E315 is an additive approved by the EU (European Union). It is used as a synthetic antioxidant in food and drink products.

The common name for E315 is erythorbic acid. It may also be referred to as araboascorbic acid or saccharosonic acid.

E315 is a synthetic isomer* of E300 (vitamin C), and is produced from sucrose. E315 has a much lower vitamin activity than E300.
*Isomers are compounds that have the same molecular formula, but a differing structural formulea, so a molecule of E315 contains the same types and proportions of atoms as a molecule of vitamin C, but they are arranged differently.

E315 has been said to irritate the skin, eyes and respiratory system (in some circumstances).

Examples of food and drink products that may include E315:

  • soft drinks.
