Best Answer
Ascorbic acid is prepared in industry from glucose in a method based on the historical Reichstein process or a more biotechnological process, first developed in China in the 1960s, but further developed in the 1990s. Ascorbic acid is one form ("vitamer") of vitamin C , and simple it is the chemical name for vitamin C. "Ascorbic acid is a water-soluble, sugar-based acid with strong antioxidant properties. It is the purest form of vitamin C and was the first compound to be synthesized and identified as such." You can say that this is the synthesized form because humans can't produce the vitamin C . Any food that contains vitamin C also contains bioflavonoids. Bioflavonoids are required for absorption of vitamin C and both work together in the body. Although bioflavonoids are not considered a vitamin, they are sometimes referred to as vitamin P. That's why vitamin C is accompanied with bioflavonoids.
