What is Calcium Ascorbate?  A form of vitamin C, Calcium ascorbate is a compound with the molecular formula CaC12H14O12. It is the calcium salt of ascorbic acid, one of the mineral ascorbates. It is approximately 10% calcium by mass. As a food additive, it has the E number E 302. It is approved for use as a food in the EU, USA, Australia, and New Zealand.

Each type of vitamin C ascorbate contains a positively charged cation and a negatively charged ascorbate anion, so calcium ascorbate contains an ascorbate anion and a calcium ion. Because the ascorbate anion is the active part of each compound, mineral ascorbates exhibit many of the same beneficial properties as vitamin C.

Uses of Calcium Ascorbate  Calcium ascorbate is primarily an additive in the food and beverage industry, but also has applications in cosmetics, skin care, pharmaceuticals, and as an ingredient in animal feed.
