WE have recently started solids and I have been reading differnt labels and I was wondering why some brands include ascorbc acid and some dont. For example the Gerber Sweet Potatoes list: sweet potatoes and water. The Del Monte Sweet Potates say sweet potatoes, water, ascorbic acid. Just curious as to what the acid is and why some foods have it and other dont. Thanks!

It's a food preservative. I bet the Del Monte has a longer shelf life. :o)

actually, ascorbic acid is the scientific name for Vitamin C. It's added to help fruits and yellow/orange veggies maintain their color. If it wasn't added, they would turn brown...ick!
