"fresh fruit"

there was a product i found a while ago that kept foods from browning called "fresh fruit." I understand that this is essentially vitamin c. aside from using citrus, can ground up vit c pills be used? if so what dose? how much? and can you use too much?

  1. My jar of Fruit Fresh says it contains dextrose, ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and an anti-caking agent. Since the dextrose is listed first, it makes up the bulk of the mix. The directions call for a half teaspoon of Fruit Fresh per cup of fruit.
