Vitamin C Test Reagent indicator solution is blue. A colorless end point will be reached when this indicator is added to a solution containing vitamin C.

  1. First, prepare test solution by grinding vitamin C reagent tablet into a powder using a mortar and pestle or back of a spoon. Pour powder into a dropper bottle (user supplied) and add 30ml (1 oz.) of distilled water.
  2. If testing more than one liquid, label each test tube with a marker. Fill each with 50 drops of blue vitamin C indicator solution.
  3. Now add juice one drop at a time to the indicator solution in the test tube.
  4. Count drops until dark blue color turns clear. This is your end point.
  5. Compare different juices. Those that require more drops to reach the clear end point are LOWER in vitamin C.
