ACS citation help
« on: February 07, 2019, 11:50:33 PM »
I recently did a titration lab determining the ascorbic acid content of a brand of lemonade, and I need to reference the lemonade brand when talking about the %RDI in my lab report. I can't seem to find any information on how to reference product labels online, does anyone know how I would reference Country Time lemonade in ACS format?

Go on a website which states the ingredients and cite that and the date you accessed.

Typically you wouldn't use a citation for something like this. You would just put this information in your materials and methods section. E.g.,

 Lemonade (John Smith's Lemonade Company, New York) was purchased from Amazon.com and used without further purification. According to the manufacturer product label, the lemonade contained water, lemon juice from concentrate, and high fructose corn syrup and had 120 calories per 8 oz. serving.
