The aim of this study was to prepare electro-activated solutions (EAS) from calcium lactate, calcium ascorbate, and an equimolar mixture of these two salts to obtain their corresponding acids and to study their physicochemical characteristics, in particular, pH, titratable acidity, p, and antioxidant activity. Indeed, the solutions were electro-activated in a reactor comprising three compartments (anodic, central, and cathodic) separated by anionic and cationic exchange membranes, respectively. The electric current intensities used were set at 250, 500, and 750 mA for a maximum period of 30 min. Read More
