factor = (mass of vitamin C titrated) / (Volume of iodine solution used)
= (125g) / (41.3ml)
= 3.03 mg vitamin C/ml iodine solution
Experiment B: Vitamin C titration using fresh fruit sample to determine the content
The tabulated experimental data for this experiment is shown below (Table 2). In this experiment, the amount of vitamin C was calculated by multiplying the standardization factor with a used iodine solution. That is, the amount of vitamin C in 30ml of 93.54 g mandarin orange juice was 11.514mg.

As humans are unable to produce Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) but still require it for proper body function, humans obtain Vitamin C from external sources.1 Historically, citrus fruits, which have a comparatively higher amount of Vitamin C, were eaten to achieve proper amounts of Vitamin C or prevent scurvy. During the age of long sea voyages, where fresh food was scarce, scurvy was prevalent and extremely detrimental .2 However, fruit was not always available or economically feasible.…
hypothesis, the fresh Navel orange juice was expected to have a higher concentration of vitamin C than Coles orange juice However, according to the results, as seen in Graph 2, Coles Orange juice had higher concentration of vitamin C compared to the Fresh Navel orange juice, and contradicted the hypothesis.
From Graph 2, at 8oC, Coles orange juice had 19.7% higher concentration of vitamin C than fresh navel orange juice, because fresh juice had 15.62mg/100mL, whereas artificial juice had…
synthesised version of Ascorbic acid is known to be added to food and drinks, because storage of food alone is known to lead to the loss of the natural vitamin C before consumption, not forgetting when food is cooked or heated this also leads to a loss of the nutrient. Processed foods are prepared with this synthetic form and marketed for sale, allowing us humans to ingest the antioxidants normally found within natural vitamin C (Fit day, 2013). This information suggests that when scurvy…
