Ascorbic Acid in Urine
I recently had a urine dip stick test that showed I had neutral urine PH of 7. But my urine was also high in ascorbic acid.  This seems contradictory.  Why isn't the urine PH high if I have high ascorbic acid?

Also, is high ascorbic acid harmful?

I've never seen ascorbic acid on a dipstick, are you sure you read it right?


In fact, I have no idea why any one would check ascorbic acid in urine.
