Ripening and vitamin c science project ripening and vitamin c (15 ratings) vitamin c is present which is why the deep purple starch iodine solution turns clear when students drip it into the orange juice while the clarity dissipates by the adding additional iodine starch solution, higher concentrations of vitamin c will require more.

Vitamin c that has exposed to light for long periods of time will begin to degrade over time this has been demonstrated in orange juice on the shelf in a supermarket pasteurization or irradiation of foods (to destroy bacteria) tends to destroy ascorbic acid as well – one reason there is no appreciable vitamin c content of store-bought milk. Orange juice clock reaction this clock reaction is initiated by adding household strength hydrogen peroxide to a mixture containing orange juice, tintcure of iodine, and starch after about 30 seconds it suddenly changes from orange to black. Browning to the vitamin c content of orange juice exposed to air by m a joslyn, g l marsh, and agnes changes in vitamin c content of orange juice during oxidative 17’ even though air was present over and in the juice at.
Packs of orange juice from each treatment (in duplicate packs) were then analysed in duplicate, over time, to monitor the concentrations of dissolved oxygen, browning, and vitamin-c (different packs were used at each sampling time. A new study by researchers in the us claims that the vitamin c content of popular ready-to-drink brands of orange juice can drop from 45 milligrams per cup to zero within four weeks after opening. Linear regression lines were computed for reduced vitamin c in each juice over time, and differences between slopes were analyzed by oneway analysis of variance results: the orange juices from frozen concentrates contained 86 mg reduced vitamin c per fluid cup at initial preparation and 39 to 46 mg/c after 4 weeks of storage.
