Raw ginger was introduced to a series of composite antioxidants. The specimens performed better efficiency than ordinary antioxidants while extracting vitamin C from strawberry. The results suggested that, by employing raw ginger composite antioxidant, the reservation of vitamin C could be 91.63% in washing process and 76.68% in squeezing process respectively. Furthermore, in squeezing process, the reservation of vitamin C reached 84.78% while the concentrate of raw ginger antioxidant was 0.03%. The both deposits performed perfect synergy effectively. Raw ginger composite antioxidant could be the well agent to extract vitamin C from fruit.
