I recently saw a presentation by Dr. Schulze where he advised how the majority of Vitamin C comes from China -its made with GMO corn, treated with acetone, oxidized further with Carboxylic Acid, and finally bleached with clorex. Obviously, we are looking for a different solution. Although your Vitamin C offers many features we are looking, I can't find any info on how
it is manufactured. We are very concerned about that process since Dr. Schulze raised these issues. Can you provide any info? Many thanks!!
Can you please provide more information about the good doctor? His full name, perhaps a link to his web site? PhD? We know most of the experts in vitamin C and have never heard of him, except for these kind of claims which are usually made by the uninformed.
If you would like to read excellent and authoritative material about vitamin C, I can recommend several sources and books, starting with Linus Pauling's book HOW TO LIVE LONGER AND FEEL BETTER (1986)
We started the Foundation before we began selling vitamin C. VCF was formed in 1996, and we began selling vitamin C in 2005. People continually asked us for our opinion about the "best brand". We did some research and we are comfortable stating that ours is the best - purest vitamin C available, made by the company that first began producing vitamin C after its molecular structure had been identified. Many highly sensitive people are our best customers because they don't react to our products, as they react to others. Our products are more expensive than Chinese vitamin C, but we use a portion of sales to fund the nonprofit Vitamin C Foundation.
Thanks for your quick reply!! I'll dig out Dr. Schulze's info/website and send it to you via another email. He is well respected. But I would appreciate it if you could address my concern. Are these manufacturing practices common in manufacturing Vitamin C - "treated with acetone, oxidized further with Carboxylic Acid, and finally bleached with clorex"???
These are scare tactics that have no relevancy to the end product which is ultra pure ascorbic acid, C6H8O6, even if true.
The problem with the so-called Natural products that propagate this partially erroneous information is that these products are thousands of times more expensive - gram for gram. We published a paper some time ago on the controversy
Or is the Vitamin C you recommend processed differently? I don't need finite details - just advice whether yours is or isn't processed this way (without so many chemicals). It does make me feel good that yours is the purest vitamin C available.
You may contact DSM (quali-c.com) regarding manufacturing details but I am quite certain they are proprietary. Might do a patent search.
Thank you for taking the time to respond to my latest email. I found the info for you on Dr. Richard Schulze.
He did a three-part compelling video series on Vitamin C. The following URL is for Part Two. This is where he explains about the Chinese manufactured Vitamin C:

This is the URL for his other site: www.herbdoc.com
Again, thanks so much for the info you sent me.
Here is a link to his "new" Super-C - note this is NOT vitamin C.
He implies it contains vitamin C but there is no use of "vitamin C on the label". I could not find supplement facts, but whatever vitamin C there may be in the product, may be lost during manufacturing. You would probably obtain more real vitamin C by eating fresh fruit, say an orange.
He is not calling this vitamin C. It is not vitamin C. I believe this is quite deceptive. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.
