Vitamin C can tolerate a low heat to 120 F safely for a short period of time. There is some degradiation even at room temperature.
The far larger damage to Vitamin C comes from oxygen.
The result also indicated that while a significant reduction in ascorbic acid contents was noticed within 60 minutes of exposure in tablet and grape juice no such significant change was observed in the laboratory grade until 120 minutes. However, rapid loss of the vitamin was noticed at 180 minutes of exposure.

I am using Dom's original recipe, two cups distilled water, one for each, sonicating for fifteen minutes let it set for half hr then sonicating again for 15 more minutes aproximately.
My method has worked perfectly till the introduction of the new C. I don't stir constantly, but stir every two minutes when I restart the machine. Always worked fine with great encapsulation to this point.
I am suspecting my US machine. Still makes noise and patterns in the solution, but maybe it is wearing out. I was using the new machine, but I am trying the old one that seemed to be losing it's effectiveness, but was still working when I retired it.
Facing the fact that I just might be out till I can order another one. I will get one of the proffessional grade ones this time. Don't really got the money for it this payday, but darnit I don't wanna go without either, and I don't see the point in ordering another of these sonic wave ones for 25 bucks again.
