I stumbled across the subject while reading coronavirus articles and hoped I had found something that could help. I'm planning on making the recipe described by qualityliposomalc using the following variations:
1. Blender only (I don't have an ultrasonic cleaner and they're very expensive to buy in Canada).
3. NOW brand ascorbic acid and sunflower lecithin powder.
I noticed that Step 2 of the process says "It is important that mixture is nicely warm to touch as this ensures that the lecithin granules have melted and avoids any chance of separation." I would prefer to be more precise about the temperature. Some searches I ran on "transition temperature" suggested that the temperature should be raised to about 45 - 49°C. I hope that some of you can comment on this.
120 degrees F seems far too warm to my memory of making lipsomal C at home. I believe that temperature would destroy a certain amount of your vitamin c before it gets encapsulated. If I recall correctly, I heated the mixture to 95 degrees F, or 35 C.
