Determination of the Potential Role and Health benefit of the Concentration of Vitamin c in some Fruit Samples

Maimuna Buba, Amina A. maitama


As a result of the rapid increase in stroke, lack of immune system functioning well, wrinkles on skin and so many more, this experiment was carried out to show the importance and benefits of vitamin c in the human body. Vitamin c content in four different fruit samples was determined by qualitative analysis (iodometric titration). Results obtained show variation in vitamin c content in different fruit samples and the value ranges from 0.0290 to 0.0054 showing higher amount of vitamin c in orange fruits compared to the other fruits.

Other scientist that carried out similar experiment with different methods have shown varying results: in some cases orange fruits/juices have higher vitamin c content; some experiments were carried out on ripe and unripe fruits to determine the concentration of vitamin c in them. However, this experiment shows higher amount of vitamin c content in orange, lemon, pineapple and mango respectively.

Key words: Ascorbic acid, iodometric titration, lemon, mango, orange, pineapple.
